Information Systems

Modern organisations are using technology to deliver innovative services and products that have changed the way we live. Information Systems professionals play a vital role by integrating computer systems and business processes in order to transform a business vision into reality.

Your studies in the Department of Information Systems will prepare you to become a driving force in creating the organisations of the future and making a difference to the world of tomorrow.

One of the research areas in this department is Health Informatics which can be described as an interdisciplinary field that brings together information systems, computer science and healthcare by using ICTs to acquire, store, retrieve and use information to improve health.

This recently established research group within the Information Systems department aims to promote research into health information systems and processes that can be used to improve healthcare service delivery in South Africa.

To find out more about studies in Health Informatics, contact Professor Greg Foster (g.foster@ru.ac.za) or Ms Jane Nash (j.nash@ru.ac.za).

Leading research is also being undertaken in the area of Information and Communication Technology for Development: Ethical Research and Practice, Project Management, and Evaluation.

In this project, the development of guidelines for Information Communication for Development (ICT4D) practice, that are both viable and have a sound theoretical basis, form a central thrust. Evaluation of ICT4D interventions, as well as project management practices essential in various ICT4D initiatives are explored.

To find out more about studies in ICT4D, contact Mr Kirstin E.M. Krauss (k.krauss@ru.ac.za) or Dr Caroline Khene (c.khene@ru.ac.za)
