Many hospital managers agree that they can copy their successful experience in the medical center through implementing the information system (IS) successfully in the older adults care institution. However, these facilities are not the same care model as general hospitals. In addition, the scales of operation in older adults care institution are often rather small and they can not undertake IS project with a high failure risk. Thus, the same standards for evaluating a successful implementation cannot be guaranteed for both types of institutions. A suitable system evaluation framework before the whole system migrates is very important, especially in the older adults care institution with low informatization levels. The goal of this study is emphasized by developing an innovative system project and its’ multiple evaluation framework in our case which turned to be a research-action, study participant comprising whole staffs and its residents of the older adults care village of biggest health care group in Taiwan. The results describe our resulting functional design of the system, multiple evaluation framework phases, and several challenges, difficulties or attentions. The contribution of this study is our project design and practical feasibility and execution of its evaluation methodology to an older adults care institution.
