Abstract: The adoption and diffusion of e-health and the application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in healthcare is being heralded as the panacea. In this context, a model of network-centric healthcare operations has been proffered as the best way to maximise the benefits of ICT as well as to facilitate the rapid sharing of information and effective knowledge building required for the development of coherent objectives and their subsequent attainment. Integral to the success of such a model is the need to embrace the tools and techniques of Knowledge Management (KM) as elaborated upon in the following paper.
