dc.description.abstract IT adoption in the healthcare sector still lags behind expectations. The literature has extensively studied IT adoption in the healthcare sector as a problem of information infrastructure development. We extend that literature by adding a supply chain perspective which treats information infrastructures as assemblies of information components. This allows us to apply the theory of collective action to these individual components rather than to the information infrastructure as a whole, as is characteristic of the information infrastructure literature. We find that some information components have the character of common resource pool goods, which require specialized and local institutional arrangements to overcome the implied free-rider problem. This sheds a new light on the current problems of slow IT adoption in the healthcare sector.
