Knowledge sharing interventions in healthcare: evidence from the literature

Giovanni Radaelli, Emanuele Lettieri, Cristina Masella


Knowledge sharing is pivotal for improving performance in healthcare. hospitals, in fact, are knowledge-intensive organisations and the innovation of current practices requires healthcare professionals to share their knowledge. Despite massive work on this topic, however, a comprehensive look at the actionable interventions is lacking. This study aims at providing hospital managers a comprehensive view of which interventions have been identified as most effective in the literature. Evidence has been gathered through the review of major contributions from the Information Systems, Management and Medicine fields. As a result, this study identifies ten interventions, classified in accordance to their potential impacts on physicians' motivation to share, knowledge transmission and social capital improvements.
