WILLIAMSBURG, VA--Professor Rajiv Kohli has been invited to be an academic visitor faculty by Judge Business School, University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
During this visit Professor Kohli will be working with Cambridge faculty and a doctoral student on projects involving information technology (IT) at the National Health Services (NHS). The team will examine the ways information technology affects hospital performance outcomes. This work will also facilitate Professor Kohli's ongoing analysis of the role IT plays in reducing uncompensated hospital care in the United States. In his work he will contrast U.S. hospital performance with the NHS hospitals in the United Kingdom. As a nationalized healthcare system, uncompensated healthcare does not affect NHS hospitals as it does among US hospitals.
Professor Kohli will also be working on specialized research for Reuters, a global information company providing information for professionals in the financial services, media and corporate markets. This research will focus on IT-enabled innovation at Reuters.
In addition to his appointment at Judge Business School, Professor Kohli has also been invited by the Aston Business School in Birmingham to present a seminar on information technology and risk management in healthcare.
Professor Kohli's research is published in MIS Quarterly, Management Science, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly Executive, Journal of Management Information Systems, Communications of the ACM, and Decision Support Systems, among other journals. He is a coauthor of the book The IT Payoff: Measuring Business Value of Information Technology Investment, (2002) published by Financial Times Prentice-Hall. Dr. Kohli's research interests include Business Value of Information Technology, Healthcare Information Systems, and Decision Support Systems.
In 2007, Kohli was awarded an Erskine Fellowship at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. He received one of only two information systems fellowships awarded in 2007 at the University of Canterbury.
