    Collaborative Diabetes Management in China: A Digital Empowerment Perspective
    ( 2020-01-07) Tan, Hongying ; Yan, Mengling
    With the widespread of information and communication technologies (ICT) tools, home-based diabetes management (HDM) emerges as a widely approved paradigm. While extant studies focus on the enabling outcomes of ICT tools and patients’ activities, this work complements extant work with the enabling mechanisms and collaborative activities among patient, doctors, and relatives. By interpreting a successful HDM project in China from the digital empowerment perspective, this work finds that all actors benefit from (1)structural empowerment since HDM bridges critical actors by building channels for blood glucose data transmission and easy communication, (2) resource empowerment since patients and relatives get more knowledge and information about diabetes management, doctors get more financial incentives, and (3) psychological empowerment since HDM strengthens critical actors’ confidence, trust, and willingness to collaborate on diabetes management. The findings reveal the underlying mechanisms through which ICT tools enable HDM.

    [Withdrawn] How Do E-commerce Capabilities Influence Agricultural Firm Performance Gains? Theory and Empirical Evidence
    ( 2020-01-07) Lin, Jiabao
    Based on the resource-based view of the firm and from the perspective of organizational agility, thisstudybuilds a model of the factors affecting agricultural firm performance gains in the context of e-commerce and discusses the effects of e-commerce capabilities on firm performance gains. The empirical results show that market capitalizing agility and operational adjustment agility play important mediating roles in conveying positive influences of e-commerce capabilities’ dimensions on financialand non-financial performance gains. Specifically, managerial, analytical, and technical capabilities have different effects on market capitalizing agility and operational adjustment agility, with talent capability performing the most important role. Both market capitalizing agility and operational adjustment agility have positive impacts on financial and non-financial performance gains, respectively.

    With the continuous development of information technology, the carrier of we-media has emerged. The WeChat Subscription Accounts has quickly led the other we-media platforms. During the six years of its emergence, WeChat Subscription Accounts have attracted a lot of traffic and brought huge profit margins. Based on the above background, this study combines the heuristic-systematic model of information processing to classify the heuristic and systematic factors that influence the dissemination of WeChat push. Analyze the factors affecting WeChat push transmission, supplement relevant theories, and provide suggestions for WeChat Subscription Accounts operators.

    Exploring Trust in Online Ride-sharing Platform in China: A Perspective of Time and Location
    ( 2020-01-07) Meng, Xiangsong ; Cheng, Xusen ; Fu, Shixuan ; Sun, Jianshan
    Trust is a key issue to be considered deliberately in the online ride-sharing platform to reduce risk and ensure transactions. In this paper, trust-in-platform is explored from these two perspectives to fill the research gaps. A ride-sharing platform in China was investigated. Results show that trust-in-platform in economically developing districts is slightly higher than that in economically developed districts. At the same time, trust-in-platform level differs in time, trust-in-platform levels are obviously lower between 19’o clock and 23’o clock. Moreover, machine learning is employed to predict the relationships between time/location and trust-in-platform. The result is that recall is 78.3%, precision is 57.3%, and F1 is 66.2%. The result shows trust-in-platform has an obvious correlation with time and location, thus further consolidates the findings. This study contributes to the existing knowledge on trust in the ride-sharing platforms and has practical implications for platform operators.
