Academics and practitioners working in the field of healthcare management need to effectively manage knowledge and KM. KM places value on the tacit knowledge that individuals hold within an institution and often makes use of IT to free up the collective wisdom of individuals within an organization. Clinical Knowledge Management: Opportunities and Challenges establishes a convergence in thinking between KM and knowledge engineering healthcare applications. This book assembles original and innovative contributions in the area of KM and knowledge engineering applications for healthcare systems and clinical engineering applications. Clinical Knowledge Management: Opportunities and Challenges reinforces the implicit contention that the healthcare industry is calling for KM frameworks that can marry these two perspectives. This book has appeal in both camps and is the first to genuinely examine KM for healthcare in the necessary holistic manner.
