Abstract

Humanitarian organizations strive for efficient and effective interventions, with information systems playing a crucial role. However, integrating data collection and processes within their operations remains a challenge. This paper examines the effective use of a Health Management Information System in a humanitarian context. Effective use aims at helping information systems contribute to the organisational objectives and holds promises to help improving information systems in this domain. The analysis uncovers obstacles related to system access and learning processes, suggesting that transparent interaction is vital for success. Transparent interaction is the first dimension in the Theory of Effective Use. Through contextualization, this paper defines effective use in humanitarian settings and evaluates the theoretical model's validity in this unique context. Drawing from concepts from the information systems body of theory, it contributes to the understanding of effective use by offering a contextualized model and a clear definition of transparent interaction, emphasizing its significance.
