AIM-HIT, Research Proposals
Students interested in postgraduate study with us can do research on one of the following research proposals:
- Natalspruit Hospital in Vosloosrus, Gauteng is late in its commissioning. The reasons for the slip in delivery of hospital must be investigate. The project life cycle, from the frontend loading through to commissioning and handover should be investigated.
- Two high-technology hospitals are the pride of the South African Public Healthcare, namely, Nkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital in Kwazulu-Natal and the Khayelitsha District Hospital in the Western Cape. The investigation will be about the technologies that are installed in these two modern hospitals and how effectively they are used to achieve an acceptable service delivery.
- In South Africa, many pilot projects on of eHealth/ICT for Health was undertaken in the public health sector. The implementation has various degrees of sucess/failure. An investigation should be undertaken to determine why eHealth/ICT for Health projects have failed in the past.
- In South Africa, many pilot projects on of eHealth/ICT for Health was undertaken in the public health sector. The implementation has various degrees of sucess/failure. Some vendors claim that they have achieved success. An investigation should be undertaken to determine which eHealth/ICT for Health projects have achieved success and what was the success criteria for those projects.
- eHealth/ICT for Health was undertaken in the public and private health sector. Medical doctors and other healthcare professionals still use paper records. An investigation should be undertaken to determine why doctors and healthcare workers do not use the eHealth systems?
- Many audits are being done in South Africa on healthcare infrastructure and technology at very high cost. This investigation should determine what is done with the information optained from the audits and how does it inform decision making in infrastructure and technology management.
- An investigation should be conducted into the assestmanagement practises of the public health care system in South Africa and how engineering assets can contribute in improving current practises.
