There has been very little evidence to suggest the effective use of, and demand for, computer-based systems by health care administrators to support their increasingly complex decision-making activities. This is so, despite a considerable amount of research attention paid to examining the efficiency and power of mathematical models, and the application of increasingly sophisticated Management Science Techniques to problems encountered within the health care system over the last several years. In recent times, advancing computer technology: 1) promises to close the gap between theory and practice, 2) creates a new perspective for computerized decision support in health care organisations, and 3) points to the need for new directions in research. This paper highlights the factors that are critical to the success of interfacing between health managerial decision-makers and effective computerized decision aids.
