Several national health care studies have documented that the American health care system is in dire need of fundamental change. There is evidence to suggest that the industry has the required knowledge to support the changes needed; yet the challenge appears to be the inability of the health care system to implement evidence-based changes into the system
Faced with the problem of how to learn to use evidence-based medicine to improve the care of chronically ill patients in its population, the large, urban, public hospital system in this study used learning collaboratives as a mechanism for organizational learning. The dissertation concludes that one way for organizations to learn is through a process of five iterative learning cycles in which explicit and tacit knowledge of the organization's departments is aligned and shared with cross-functional teams in the first cycle, combined with knowledge imported from outside the organization in the second cycle, borrowed and adapted from other parts of the organization in the third cycle, generated and experimented with within the group in the fourth cycle, and adapted through spread in the fifth cycle
