Knowledge transfer is critical to successful knowledge management. Based on a sample of 233 physicians, this paper will argue that the mathematical model of knowledge transfer developed by Davenport and Prusak(1998) can provide a framework for knowledge transfer success, and it will explore knowledge transmission and knowledge absorption success factors. The results indicate that source credibility, knowledge quality, ICT tool, experience and perceived benefit affect knowledge transmission success. Additionally, knowledge transmission success, experience, perceived benefit and reward affect knowledge absorption success. Finally, the implications of this study are discussed.
