Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between telemedicine Knowledge Management (KM) activities and nurses' perceived efficiency and effectiveness of telemedicine in home health. Drawing from KM concepts, we propose that nurses who engage more frequently in telemedicine KM activities perceive telemedicine to contribute to efficiency and effectiveness of care. Primary data were collected from 917 nurses from 2004-2005. Results indicate a significant association between combined explicit and tacit KM activities using telemedicine and perceived efficiency and effectiveness of telemedicine. We conclude that telemedicine KM activities have a positive impact on perceived efficiency and effectiveness of care in home health.
