The following edited excerpts are highlights from a day-long meeting held under the auspices of the Care Experience Council, November 18-19, 2004. As an outgrowth of the work of the Council's Transfer of Successful Practices Workgroup, 27 physicians and employees discussed the transfer of successful practices in Kaiser Permanente (KP). The goals were to develop recommendations regarding how to improve the rate and frequency of successful transfers in KP and to outline next steps. The meeting began with several presentations reviewing explicit knowledge generated within and outside the organization: Arthur Huberman, MD, discussed the KP Transfer Study (see "Stealing Shamelessly," page 52); Jill Steinbruegge, MD, reviewed relevant concepts from the books "The Tipping Point" and "Linked"; and Guy Chicoine summarized several important concepts from the work of Everett Rogers,1 who in 1962 wrote Diffusion of Innovations, a landmark book inspired by observations on the transfer among farmers of improved strains of hybrid seed. Participants then shared their experience (tacit knowledge), and finally discussed how to improve practice transfer in two specific areas: conferences/meetings and awards (Vohs and Lawrence).
