Knowledge Management for Healthcare

Between government-driven reforms, the rise of big data, the push towards Electronic Medical Record (EMR) adoption, and increasing costs, the healthcare industry is facing an era of unprecedented changes. 

Although each organization has its own strategy for working towards its mission, a common element throughout the healthcare industry is the importance of knowledge, information, and data. 

Even so, few healthcare organizations have a knowledge management strategy in place or have an intentional approach to how they manage the knowledge lifecycle: creating, capturing, securing, describing, sharing, and reusing knowledge. 

In today's increasingly complex environment, it is critical for organizations to make the most of their internal knowledge in order to offer the best possible health care, achieve operational excellence, spark innovation, and meet (or exceed!) stakeholders' needs. Consistent, systematic knowledge management practices can help organizations achieve these goals.
