Healthcare Knowledge Management

People all over the world rely on a huge array of organizations for the provision of healthcare, from public-sector monoliths and governmental agencies to privately funded organizations, and consulting and advisory groups. It is a massive industry in which every organization faces a unique combination of operational hurdles. However, what every healthcare system has in common is the high price of failure. Faced with the prospect of failing to prevent suffering and death, the importance of continuously improving efficiency and effectiveness is high on the agenda for the majority of healthcare organizations (Brailer, 1999). In a competitive environment like the healthcare industry, trying to balance customer expectations and cost requires an ongoing innovation and technological evolution.

A team of editors and researchers calls on journal publishers to use citation distributions as measures of publication quality rather than relying on much-derided impact factors.


Science journals should calculate more-detailed citation distributions to indicate the impact of individual studies published in their pages instead of relying on the less-transparent journal impact factor (IF), according to researchers and publishers who analyzed the data underlying these scores. “We hope that this analysis helps to expose the exaggerated value attributed to the JIF [journal impact factor] and strengthens the contention that it is an inappropriate indicator for the evaluation of research or researchers,” wrote the authors of a bioRxiv preprint published this week (July 5). 2.
