Abstract:The intellectual fields that contribute to understanding patients’ use of health information systems are many, yet there is stagnation in the variety and richness of methodologies employed to investigate the complex socio-technical relationship between health consumers using technical systems to engage in the practice of personal health information management. This is in part due to the methodological challenges of studying patients’ documentation practices. In this note we present the early development of a document practice approach to address these gaps. The documentary practice approach is rooted in the socio-technical epistemic understanding that social systems and technology are intricately connected and influence each other. Documentary practice methodologies are mindful of this entanglement in studying the work practices of actors by connecting practice to the use of documents, both physical and digital, and mapping the actors’ field of documents and technical infrastructure.
