There is a general recognition that numerous organizational factors will influence the success of an informatics intervention. This is supported by a body of evidence from multi-disciplinary and health-specific research. Organizational factors are highly interrelated and the exact nature and contribution of each to the success of an intervention is not clear. A health-specific understanding and recognition of these factors is necessary if informatics applications are to reach their potential in healthcare settings.
