Oladejo Bolanle F., Olaolorun Ifeoluwatayo A.


There has been rapid advancement from data to information-to knowledge in the scope of medicine. Although knowledge management conceptual frameworks and models in medicine have been proposed, there is, however, the need for a knowledge management system to cater for the rural healthcare sector. The purpose of this paper is to capitalize medical knowledge in community pediatrics and make it available to medical users (nurses, community doctors and rural health workers) by identifying, capturing, representing and storing such medical knowledge for reuse and distribution. The study begins with brief theoretical background and then it presents a conceptual framework adapted for the implementation of a prototype.

Keywords: Knowledge Management System; Community Pediatrics; Rural Healthcare;                                                        Medicine; Medical Knowledge.
