Abstract:This paper reports on a secondary analysis of a previously completed case study that aimed to investigate knowledge sharing (KS) in Chinese hospitals. Specifically, the secondary analysis aims to identify, qualify and theorise external barriers that prevent and hinder patient-centred KS in healthcare organisations. The analysis revealed that healthcare KS is strongly influenced and hindered by five external barriers: social belief and preference, the influences of Chinese culture traits, healthcare education structure, political decisions, and economic environment and constraints. Moreover, the findings suggest that these external barriers cannot be overlooked in KS implementation and operation in healthcare organisations and should be carefully assessed beginning in the early stages of KS design and strategic planning. Based on the secondary analysis, this paper proposes a preliminary conceptual model that can be adopted as a theoretical basis for more focused investigations in future studies.
