Information and Knowledge Management among Physicians
This project explored information management practices of Swiss and German doctors by surveying 1000 physicians as well as interviewing key representatives of the Swiss and German health care systems. Analysis revealed the information that physicians require, the channels through which this information is retrieved, and how it is processed and passed on to colleagues and patients. The final aim was to develop recommendations for better information management both for individual physicians and for decision makers in Germany and Switzerland.
