Abstract

Amidst an ever changing health care knowledge, patients die most times for inadequate health care knowledge on the side of the medical personnel. To address Nigeria’s poor ranking in effective health care delivery, knowledge management - a tool that makes tacit knowledge (experience) available for use at the right time and when it is needed – has become imperative. This study proposed a knowledge management system which allows health personnel share their vital experiences which can be accessed by other health personnel at the point of care.
