Biography

Josephine McMurray is an Assistant Professor in the Business Technology Management program, Lazaridis School of Business & Economics, at Wilfrid Laurier's Brantford Campus. Her doctoral thesis examined the classification of inter-organizational electronic information exchange and interoperability as a measure of system integration. Her general research interests include healthcare system integration, quality and patient experience improvement, and system performance measurement. She has investigated information exchange in care transitions related to the frail elderly and mental health care, and measurement of electronic health information systems adoption and primary care outcomes for at risk populations. Future research projects and areas of interest include examination of values-based care models, stakeholder perceptions of technology and information exchange within organizations, technology-enabled measurement and management of patient experience, technology-enhanced human resource models, and regional health innovation ecosystems. Josephine's industry experience includes 13 years in health administration for a not-for-profit, and seven years in the for-profit sector working as a marketing manager for a multi-national and running a strategic planning and marketing consultancy.
