    Conceptual models have been developed to address challenges inherent in studying health information technology (HIT). This manuscript introduces an 8-dimensional model specifically designed to address the socio-technical challenges involved in design, development, implementation, use, and evaluation of HIT within complex adaptive healthcare by: While there are probably several hundred articles and a lesser number of books using the phrase Sociotechnical systems theory, there is a larger literature of perhaps a few thousand scholarly articles on Sociotechnical systems.

While there are sporadic journal articles on socio-technical networks, there’s long been a need for an integrated resource that addresses concrete socio-technical network (STN) design issues from algorithmic and engineering perspectives. This book provides a practical introduction to agent-based modelling of socio-technical systems, based on a methodology that has been developed at TU Delft and which has been deployed in a large number of case studies.

The book consists of two parts: the first presents the background, theory and methodology as well as practical guidelines and Brand: Springer Netherlands.
