A large number of health information system (HIS) implementations fail due to insufficient organizational harmonization. The aim of this study is to examine whether these problems remain when implementing technically integrated and more advanced generations of HIS. In a case study, data from observations, interviews, and organizational documents were analyzed using qualitative methods. We found that critical issues in the case study implementation process were the techniques employed to teach the staff to use the integrated system, involvement of the users in the implementation process, and the efficiency of the human computer interface. Comparisons with a literature review showed both recurrence of previously reported implementation problems and new issues specific to the integrated system context. The results indicate that the development of evidence-based implementation processes should be considered.
