The adoption of clinical information systems by healthcare organizations has become a strategic necessity today. For these situations to be successful, their fit becomes an important consideration. This research-in-progress study assesses the fit of three different clinical information systems in an Australian private not-for-profit healthcare group, and the readiness of this organization to adopt these systems. In so doing, it identifies key factors for the successful adoption of IS/IT in healthcare contexts. The study adopts a mixed methods approach using semi-structured interviews and an online survey.
