It has shown that there is a strong association between accessing and using information/knowledge in clinical activities and quality of healthcare service. Moreover, attitudes of Medical Practitioners (MP), Infrastructure facilities, patient information systems, patient treatment and staff benefits positive contributes towards the success of knowledge management initiatives in Health organizations.
