    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Evidence-based IT development aims at developing a new commercial contract model for IT projects where the cus-tomers payment is dependent on measurable effects of using the vendors system. The idea is to establish a strategic part-nership in which customer and IT vendor share the responsi-bility of providing IT solutions that meet agreed-upon, meas-urable effects. The project investigates effects of the use of electronic patient records, how collaboration between vendor and customer can be regulated, and how contract fulfillment could be determined on the basis of evidence of effects.
