Abstract: The potential of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) is to support medical research, improve medical quality and promote competitive advantage in the hospital industry. Due to a growing body of medical knowledge, the implementation of EBM is mainly focused on the implementation of knowledge management systems. Thus, a technological diffusion approach is a promising solution to implementation of EBM systems. The proposed implementation framework consists of the following six stages: initiation, adoption, adaptation, acceptance, routinisation and infusion. In this empirical study, we share our experience in assisting a district teaching hospital in central Taiwan to implement an EBM system based on the proposed framework.
