Identifying Where the Values Come from IT-Innovations in Health and Social Care  [PDF]
Vivian Vimarlund, Sabine Koch
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2012.425042
Abstract: Studies aimed to capture the effects of IT-innovations in health and social care have shown that there is a gap between expected and factual outcomes. Many decision makers feel the need to articulate an ideal end-state for their organiza-tions. Striking the balance between novelty and believability of such an ideal end-state is often tricky and they become neither satisfied with the ideal not the visioning. In this study, we explore the contribution of IT-innovations to health and social care. The results showed that coherence between context and IT-innovation is important to capture effects and outcomes. Being coherent rather than visionary contributes to identify where you are, as an organization, and to capture effects and outcomes that “make sense” in the context in question. The paper makes an exposition from the model building, algorithm design to performance analysis and contributes to the academic prosperity in Intelligent In-formation Management The knowledge generated is expected to provide input when identifying goals that IT-investments are supposed to achieve.
Views on Creativity, Environmental Sustainability and Their Integrated Development  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.95054
Abstract: In the modern paradigm of sustainability, the role of creativity is of growing significance. No literature was found to have explored the relationship of creativity and environmental sustainability, in the perspective of university students. It is unsure—how our university students perceive them, especially for students of different backgrounds. This study aims at investigating the views of university students on human creativity (HC) and environmental sustainability (ES), and how these two views might affect their supportiveness and understanding of HC-ES integrated development. Case studies of four university students were conducted. They were carefully chosen in an education university of Hong Kong, a place where east-west culture meets. The Self-determination Theory and the Four-C Creativity Model were adopted to frame this study and to analyze its data. Two rounds of interview were conducted with interview scripts transcribed for content analysis. Results showed that the university students hold quite diverse views on HC, ES and HC-ES relationships. The students with general creativity training and/or authentic experiences in ES/HC were found to adopt a little-C and mini-C creativity conception and a self-determined ES approach, which subsequently bought a greater support to HC-ES integrated development/education. Based on the present findings, creativity training is recommended to environmental or sustainability programme in university education. Adopted the case study method, the present research has finally revealed the complexity of this seemingly simple issue, and paves the way for future creative environmental development and its research studies.
Can public report cards affect consumer’s private learning of quality? An evaluation of the impact of Florida hospital report cards on acute myocardial infarction patient admission patterns  [PDF]
Vivian Y. Wu, Pai Liu
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.512297

The empirical literature on hospital report cards typically assumes that report card cannot interact with consumer’s private learning. This study examines the impact of the implementation of FL hospital quality reporting system in late 2004 on hospital admission patterns using a pre-post difference-in-difference design. The estimation model allows for the possibility that report-card learning may interact with non-report-card learning. The study sample is comprised of all patients admitted to any FL hospital between 2000 and 2008 with a principal diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We find that hospital admission patterns for AMI patients did not respond to report card information. However, we find evidence consistent with the possibility that the implementation of a report card system may stimulate consumers (either patients or physicians) to seek higher quality hospitals through private information channels.


El arte como objeto cultural elitista: Apuntes para una reflexión sobre las gramáticas de recepción estéticas y los procesos de interacción humana y social que se desprenden a partir de ellas

Arte, ética y socialización: Una manera de entender la estética pragmática en las coordenadas postmodernas
Romeu, Vivian;
Andamios , 2008,
Abstract: this article presents a reflexion on the social function of contemporary artistic practices. the work takes, initially, a position on postmodernism and also reviews the principal philosophical positions that allow us to assert a pragmatic proposal about the aesthetic proposal. by means of the critical analysis of these proposals, the author indicates the aspects that could be taken into account to elaborate a view that allows us to think about the inmanent relations between art and ethics, which is oriented in this work through the concepts of "dialogue", "knowledge" and "aesthetic experience".

The Sea Stacks Project: Enhancing the Use of Regional Literature in Atlantic Canadian Schools
Vivian Howard
Partnership : the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research , 2012,
Abstract: Research over the past two decades has amply demonstrated the importance of literature to the formation of both regional and national cultural identity, particularly in the face of mass market globalization of children’s book publishing in the 21st century as well as the predominance of non-Canadian content from television, movies, books, magazines and internet media. However, Canadian children appear to have only very limited exposure to Canadian authors and illustrators. In Atlantic Canada, regional Atlantic Canadian authors and illustrators for children receive very limited critical attention, and resources for the study and teaching of Atlantic Canadian children’s literature are few. Print and digital information sources on regional children’s books, publishing, authors and illustrators are scattered and inconsistent in quality and currency. This research project directly addresses these key concerns by summarizing the findings of a survey of Atlantic Canadian teachers on their use of regional books. In response to survey findings, the paper concludes by describing the creation of the Sea Stacks Project an authoritative web-delivered information resource devoted to contemporary Atlantic Canadian literature for children and teens.
