Recently knowledge management (KM) has become very important part of the everyday work in healthcare practices. The KM transforms a health organization into a learning organization able to generate new knowledge, create knowledge systems and base organizational actions on knowledge in healthcare. It makes the close and long-term relationship among healthcare providers and patients to create a greater mutual understanding, trust, and patient involvement in decision making. The paper discusses telemedicine, information technology, efficient nursing system, medical errors and reduction of these errors, healthcare cooperation among different healthcare providers in healthcare systems. It briefly discusses healthcare strategy in four developed and developing countries. This paper investigates the creation, sharing, storing and utilization of knowledge in medical science. The aim of this study is to apply the concept of KM and to investigate the use of KM to the health sector. An attempt has been taken here to discuss overview of KM, its methods and techniques, and applications of efficient KM in health sector.
