I applaud doctors Kovner and Rundall for attempting to address the critical management principle of evidence-based management, but encourage them to further study why this principle has not been used more extensively in healthcare organizations. The lack of application calls for new and creative approaches to developing evidence-based management research and for increasing the availability to healthcare managers. The process to access the research must not be excessively time-consuming or difficult if it is going to be integrated into the day-to-day culture of organizations. Healthcare needs to focus on how to integrate evidence-based management into the culture of healthcare organizations.
