Context is a key issue when designing, implementing, and evaluating health information technology. Advanced and well-designed systems may not achieve desired outcomes because of complex contextual issues, and unintended consequences are often reported in the literature. The conference introduced in this article integrates sociotechnical and human factors based theories and methods for analysis and evaluation of complex health information technologies in diverse environments demanding high context sensitivity.
