Abstract:This case research investigates how visualisation techniques can assist with bridging the research to practice gap. Adapting and adopting new technologies is proven to be problematic in any organisation. This is well described in the implementation research literature. Research indicates that the majority of innovations fail to be adopted, particularly in healthcare. This is mainly due to implementation failure rather than to failure of the innovation itself. One solution for embedding a new technological solution may be the use of visualisation techniques such as ‘Patient Journey Modelling’ (PJM). This technique focusses on the human interactions when introduced to and asked to implement new technologies. To overcome the problem of failure to convince stakeholders to implement new technologies, this research investigates the effects of Essomenic, a patient journey modelling software. The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the functionality of visualisation techniques (such as Essomenic) to assist with convincing stakeholders to implement a new scheduling technology, such as UltraGenda. In this context, technology is used to bridge the gap between research and practice.
