This thesis is about evaluation of ICT applications in health care. How can information systems for patients and health care professionals best be evaluated? How to take into account that one - in practice - is often confronted with limited resources? The author describes the difficulties in designing information systems that are supposed to replace and add surplus value to existing forms of information exchange. For information systems to become and remain successful, one needs to have a thorough understanding of the needs of the users and the practical, social and political context in which these systems are used.
