    Abstract

    Kingdom of Saudi Arabia strategically adopts the best approaches to transform its healthcare system, aligning with global health service standards. Additionally, it recognizes the pivotal role of the Ministry of Health as the legislative and regulatory authority in the healthcare sector. This alignment is based on the strategic goals of Saudi health clusters, derived from Vision 2030, which aims to transition to a knowledge-based economy. Notably, health clusters have embraced knowledge management as a modern department to organize and leverage health-related knowledge, thereby achieving the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 targets. The present study investigates the applications of knowledge management within Saudi health clusters. These clusters bear the responsibility of safeguarding the health of citizens and residents in Saudi Arabia, providing exceptional care. The study focuses on a case study of Makkah health cluster, which pioneers the establishment of a dedicated knowledge management unit. By setting specific research objectives, the study aims to reveal the current state of knowledge management in Makkah Health Cluster, explore knowledge practices and highlight challenges hindering effective knowledge management. The study employed a descriptive survey methodology, utilizing interviews to collect necessary information through a set of open-ended questions. The study sample consisted of (13) leaders working in Makkah health cluster during the summer of 2023. Among the significant findings, there is a notable interest in health-related knowledge management within Makkah health cluster. The researcher recommends implementing initiatives and programs to activate the desired role of knowledge management in light of Vision 2030.
