Since the turn of the century, many residential aged care homes in Australia have made the transition from paper-based documentation to computer-based health records. This thesis explores issues pertaining to organisational change associated with this process based on longitudinal interviews with care staff in three residential aged care homes under the same management group over an eighteen month period during and after the system's introduction.
