Dr. Ravi Behara and Prof. Sunil Babbar of ITOM together with Prof. P.A. Smart (Exeter University, UK) have jointly published the following article:
Behara, R.S., S. Babbar, and P.A. Smart (2014), Leadership in OM Research: A Social Network Analysis of European Researchers, International Journal of Operations and Production Management, 34 (12), 1537-1563.
This study examines the leadership role of authors, institutions, and countries based on research co-authorship networks in the field of OM and ranks European authors, institutions, and countries using network centrality measures. It also identifies the primary research areas of each of the leading European authors and maps the areas that European research in general has focused most on.
Drs. Derrick Huang, Ravi Behara and Jahyun Goo of ITOM have jointly published the following article:
Huang, C.D., R.S. Behara, and J. Goo (2014), Optimal Information Security Investment in a Healthcare Information Exchange: An Economic Analysis, Decision Support Systems, 61, 1-11.
This study applies classical economic decision analysis techniques and models the Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) based on its network characteristics to offer key insights into the issue of determining the optimal level of information security investment. The complexity of the problem, the increasing security breaches, and the regulatory and financial consequences of breached patient data highlight the fact that security of electronic patient information in Healthcare Information Exchanges is an organizational imperative and a research priority.
