KM in Research InstituitonsAs the Obama Healthcare plan is being dissected by politicians and the public alike, in order to stimulate innovation and bring down healthcare cost the federal government must leverage Knowledge Management (KM). You may be asking yourself… How can we leverage KM to bring affordable healthcare to all Americans?

The knowledge being shared includes research, patient records, and doctor expertise. These collaborative work enviornments will bring more effective communication along with more responsiveness to patients.
