The paper discusses previous models constructed for managing knowledge in the context of healthcare organizations.These previous studies are focused on suggesting implementations for the knowledge management’s initiatives that are aimed at optimizing the healthcare services. Three models had been thoroughly reviewed and attention has been addressed to explain the constructs of these models.These constructs include factors, entities and elements involved in the creation, storing, transfer and use of the knowledge within a healthcare organization.Subsequently, a gap analysis has been applied to shed light on the shortcomings of each model and how the proposed framework will overcome them.These shortcomings were synthesized in six themes, these themes were realized from the inclusion of all constructs and factors addressed by the three studied model.The development of the proposed framework (HKMF) is still under study in an ongoing research that aims at optimizing the medical knowledge management within a selected healthcare organization. Further refinements and improvements will be applied to the proposed framework and its elements after the data collection and analysis are completed.The paper concludes with recommendations for future research works and efforts intended enhancing the management of knowledge within healthcare organizations.
