Stefan Klein will discuss some of the ideas in "Medication Infrastructure Innovation in a Hospital Group" (Klein & Schellhammer, 2012) which as presented at the recent Innovation in Information Infrastructures (III 2012) conference in Edinburgh.

Abstract (Paraphrased from the paper)

In this case a centralized medical logistics hub, which provides medication to most of the members of the hospital group according to negotiated service-level agreements. The traditional infrastructure has been drastically reformed and an innovative infrastructure model has been created instead.

We reflect on this transformation against the background of practice theory and the constellation of practices evident.
