Abstract:

The rate of adoption of new technologies into healthcare systems is considered to be slower than in other settings. A range of knowledge-based facilitators of adoption exist, including: technology specification and assessment; dissemination tools (including electronic decision support tools); networks and facilitated interaction; and skills and leadership development. A review of the evidence relating to each of these is reported in this paper. The authors identify the absence of a single knowledge-related 'magic bullet' before proposing an analytical framework for the future assessment of knowledge-based interventions and their impact on technology adoption.
