Abstract: The healthcare ecosystem is complex with many opportunities for knowledge management and e-learning research and application given that healthcare is currently in a state of global crisis and transition with no country in the world able to deal with the onslaught of chronic illness complications using traditional approaches. Knowledge management and e-learning demands increase tremendously under these circumstances. Fortunately, big data along with appropriate eHealth technology support, including mobile devices, provide an opportunity for new thinking that extends beyond traditional treatment to embracing wellness in moving from disease treatment to disease prevention. Multi-stakeholder knowledge management and e-learning are critical components in enacting this change in thinking. Big data driven technology can be the catalyst and enabler for innovative approaches to a sustainable healthcare model engaging key stakeholders in formulating strategy, collaborative action plans, and managing knowledge for sustained behavioral change. However, knowledge management and e-learning can take many twists and turns that warrant special consideration given the complex nature of healthcare. This talk will address salient issues with examples in practice and research in progress.
