I think I have found a perfect topic for a Phd thesis : E-iatrogenesis.

“E-iatrogenesis,” is widely used to describe the unintended consequences generated by HIT systems and how they impact workflow and affect quality.

One of my pet interest is the Social – Technical aspect of how IT improves the quality of healthcare and examining E-iatrogenesis can help one in that matter (to quote Sun Tzu’s The Art of War – “if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will fight without danger in battles“)

Anyway, I chanced upon the term here, check it out.
