Managing Knowledge in Telehealth

Telehealth makes use of information and communication technology to facilitate exchanges in the health sector between central hospitals and remote sites for patient diagnosis and care and professional training. A great deal of knowledge is created and communicated within telehealth projects yet thinking and systems to support knowledge management are lagging behind.

This Australian Council Research Linkage grant explores the knowledge management challenges in telehealth to suggest improvements and solutions in the area. According to Craig Standing, the Chief Investigator on the project managing the expertise and knowledge in the telehealth arena is the key to radically improving the outcomes for all parties involved. Most focus on the adoption of technology but fail to view telehealth projects more holistically by considering the motivations of those involved, team cohesion and especially the value of knowledge.
