This is a claim of EBMgt. Thus, the practical framework of EBMgt should be designed based on the best available evidence. In this study, the factors affecting EBMgt were identified among organizational managers that factors were categorized into the following domains: facilitators, barriers, sources of evidence, and process of EBMgt decision making. The practical framework of EBMgt was designed based on the exploratory factors of different studies. The framework will guide managers of various organizations that they make the best decisions.
The evidence-based organization is a system that its management uses the practical framework of EBMgt. As shown in Figure 2 , initially the barriers and facilitators must be identified per sources of evidence best evidence for implementing EBMgt.
Therefore, facilitators must be supported, and barriers must be converted to facilitators or should be eliminated. When the infrastructure of the organization and management is provided, organizational and managerial decisions will be made using cycle of EBDM during six steps 6A. In the cycle of EBDM, the pyramid of evidence must be considered to make best decisions based on available best evidence. In the beginning, practical issues or problems must be translated into an answerable question and then systematically searched and retrieved. The third step is critically judging trustworthiness while the fourth step is weighing and pulling the evidence.

Finally, evidence must be applied to the decision-making process. Then, outcome of the decision evaluated. The pyramid of evidence show levels of evidence that help to make the best decisions. It must be noted that the practical framework of evidence-based management should be based on the best resources from identifying barriers and facilitators.
To date, meta-analyses and meta-syntheses meta-meta , based on RCTs studies, were included the highest level. A question mark? It must be noted that EBMgt is not related to a specific period, but always looking for the best evidence. EBMgt should be taught by professional coaches and then used by managers and leaders.
EBMgt is the art of using the best for achieving the best.
Using data to drive organizational change in healthcare
Several factors have played different roles in affecting the practice of EBMgt among healthcare managers. The interaction between these factors is complex. Thus, the framework developed in this study may guide the development of strategies to encourage and improve the utilization of evidence in management decision-making process. Furthermore, to increase the benefit and utilization of EBMgt, training organizations, universities, healthcare centers and research institutes must more actively involve hospital managers in setting research plans.
Also, it is essential that appropriate presentation of research evidence should be fully considered to facilitate the interpretation of research evidence created to improved management practice in the health care organizations.

Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century.
Abstract Background Evidence-based management EBMgt improves managerial decisions as a bridge from theory to practice. Results Of 26, identified studies, 26 met the full inclusion criteria.
Conclusions EBMgt is crucial to improve the quality of management decisions, and hence, to improve service delivery, effectiveness and efficiency. Keywords: Evidence-based management, evidence-based medicine, healthcare organizations. Introduction There has been an intense effort toward developing modern models for organization and administration, especially in the last 20 years.
Methods Search strategy and selection criteria The search was formulated using the following broad parameters: Types of participants: In this review, studies were included that healthcare managers men and women worked at healthcare institutions or organizations who had used experiences of evidence-based management. Types of studies : The inclusion criteria were as follows: Primary studies English were included Qualitative studies, including but not limited to , phenomenological, grounded theory, ethnographic, case studies and thematic analysis studies of healthcare managers' experiences and perceptions of evidence-based management were included.
Results Among the 26, records identified from database searches, 17, remained after we removed duplicates, and articles remained for full-text assessment. Ellen et al. Open in a separate window. Organizational factors Compensation and reward system, organizational and administrative support, clear vision, workforce development, organizational structure, a receptive organizational culture, create a knowledge translation culture, developing and implementing an infrastructure, organizations programs of EBMgt, promotion of staff development opportunities, time frame for making decisions, recognize in recruitment and retention strategies, emphasize the value of research use, build awareness of clear points of contact, place value on accreditation components, knowledge intelligence service, publish and disseminate local research results, institute communications and marketing efforts related to research evidence, quality and safety standards, organizational processes and local connections.
Decision-makers characteristics Lack of criteria for selecting decision-makers, lack of reward and incentive mechanism, Insufficient knowledge and negative attitude toward EBMgt, lack of trust in domestic evidence, lack of awareness of researchers' ability, excuse of lack of time to make true evidence based decisions. Organizational evidence Organizational data, internal data, facts, extensive personal networks inside, social or political mandates, agency mandate and resources, agency service providers and agency clients.
