Time for a Paradigm Shift: Managing Smarter by Moving from Data and Information to Knowledge and Wisdom in Healthcare Decision-Making

Time for a Paradigm Shift: Managing Smarter by Moving from Data and Information to Knowledge and Wisdom in Healthcare Decision-Making | Shifting Population Health | Scoop.it

Dr. Dan:  Having just posted a KM quote on KM supporting evidenced-based decision-making I wanted to point to this article as a great summary of that application as it is applied to health care.  This article, I believe, speaks to the need to see beyond "big data" to ensure that the right knowledge (not data, not information) is available to support the organizational needs.

 

Ramona Kyabaggu's insight:

Excellent model outlining how KM can support decision-making in practice. As an Information Management professional and KB, this model speaks to how our information gathering processes need to be appropriately planned so that we can more efficiently and effectively synthesize and interpret evidence. Health Information Management professionals  with the view toward analyzing and interpreting evidence may play an increasingly important role in this continuum from data collection to evidence-informed decision making.

Best sound bite about the need for having in place a system which supports the KM role in evidenced-based decision-making:

"Senior decision-makers in the Canadian healthcare system have to continuously make significant, and complex, policy and program decisions. However, it appears that, often, the evidence they have available is fairly simple descriptive information, collected for operational purposes. Trying to solve complex problems with fairly simple data may lead to suboptimal decisions. This article presents a new knowledge development system (KDS) that should allow senior decision-makers and others to manage smarter and take their decision-making to the next level."

Another mostly self-licking ice cream cone as although they provide some nice sound bites for the "why" of Knowledge Management within an industry that surely needs it, it is also very much a marketing piece for a consulting firm that consists of a self-described "team of  information management consulting experts."  Which doesn't bode well for moving towards a KM strategy as they focus upon "improving information capture, organization and sharing" to "develop a KM strategy based on strategic business goals and information objectives."


So, lots of information management....and as said over and over, Information Management is NOT Knowledge Management.


But if you're looking for some nice bullet points to fill your quick pitch sheet, you could "re-purpose" what's here.
