Foundations of a healthcare knowledge management application system.
Tringali M., de Lusignan S.
Much of the knowledge management (KM) literature suggests that organizations should adopt either a "personalization" or "codification" strategy and that to mix the two is unwise. Two European schools have come to the conclusion that a broad strategy is needed. Its key conceptual elements are in three dimensions: the type (explicit - tacit), focus (information - learning) and organization (digital - social) of knowledge. Without this broad approach it is impossible to reconcile the wish to provide (codified) evidence-based solutions to populations at the same time as personalized care for individuals.
