Knowledge Translation and Analysis


Knowledge Translation and Analysis is a key component of the projects supported through the eHealth Centre of Excellence. Our research team uses an approach to evaluation that is linked with the change management and adoption process, with a two-fold purpose in mind:

  1.  Identifying the processes that produce organizational and clinical value in  health workflows
  2.  Assessing how the use of different digital health tools can yield increased value.

The research team examines academic research and documented best practice guidelines to understand the clinical value propositions that should motivate specific clinical workflows to adopt change.


The Knowledge Translation and Analysis framework, originally called "Benefits Realization" and developed by the eHealth Centre of Excellence for the   connecting  South  West Ontario (cSWO) Program, has  been  published in 

Building Capacity for Health Informatics in the Future, a peer-reviewed ebook that details the proceedings of  the 2017 Information Technology and Communications in Health conference (ITCH 2017). Click here to read it!
