Abstract

This paper presents an in-depth case study on the determinants considered by a hospital in the UK in implementing one of their Information Systems (IS) projects, the Graphical Drug Histories System (GDHS). Regardless of the non-adherence to formal IS implementation methods, this case study illustrates that individual’s eagerness has been the prime-contributing factor to the success of the project. The lack of formal practices did not hinder the implementation eventual accomplishment; it merely added to the many hurdles the journey it took. The system was delivered with positive review and recognition by staff within the hospital.
