H1067 ( Universitetsveien 25, Kristiansand )

Dragana´s research interests unite two strands of significant information systems inquiry: data governance in digital ecosystems, and the production, sharing and usage of patient-generated healthcare data. Her PhD research project investigates the topic of data governance in digital ecosystems in healthcare, taking place in heavily regulated socio-institutional environments. 

Empirically, she is investigating this topic by following digital transformation initiatives for patient-centric care, which are heavily rooted in the importance of sharing citizen/patient data beyond the boundaries of single organizations. Theoretically, her interests lie in complexity theories, or assemblage theory in particular. She aims to use this high-level abstract theory to generate concepts which will bring greater understanding to the data governance phenomenon.


I hold a master’s degree in “E-business management” from Faculty of economics, “University Ss. Cyril and Methodius” in Skopje, North Macedonia. My master’s thesis was titled “Integrating eHealth platforms and organizational information systems – ‘Moj Termin’ in the Republic of North Macedonia”, looking into the challenges of integrating the national eHealth platform with the digital infrastructure in the healthcare sector.

I also have 4 years of industry experience, working in the IT industry and in the outsoucring business. My experience under the job role of digital marketing manager was cross-disciplinary, including website development, QA software testing, graphic design, digital marketing and online advertising.
