Tiedonhallinnan prosessimallin hyödyntäminen sosiaali- ja terveydenhuollon tiedonhallintaa koskevissa tutkimuksissa
Scientific research is based on a selected theory or a theoretical model which also will serve a basis for reviewing the results. Information management cycle has been used as a theoretical model in social and health care studies, but gathered information on the usability of the model in social and health care research has been lacking. The aim of this study is to reduce this lack of information. A descriptive literature review was used and in total 16 social and health care studies were selected for the study. Information management cycle was used to review the results and to develop new information management models. The studies were mainly qualitative and informants mainly social and health care professionals. Information from data warehouses was used only in three studies. Studies results were reviewed according to information management cycle. The use of information was mainly reviewed in the studies were results were reviewed according to every phase of the information management cycle or in which also information needs and/or information acquisition were reviewed. This study showed that information management cycle is well applicable in social and health care studies. This study also showed that social- and health care information management research needs more quantitative and register research. This article reviewed studies, dissertations and master’s theses which had been carried out in social and health care context and in which information management cycle was used.
