In 2018, the MHA Keystone Center partnered with Vlasic & Roth LLC. The Birmingham-based firm analyzes hospital data and provides methodologies and evidence-based interventions to drive high-impact, measurable and sustainable performance improvement. As part of the partnership, the Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course is available to all in the healthcare community.
What is Implementation Science?
Implementation science is the study of how to transform evidence-based ideas into changes incorporated into everyday practice that improve healthcare outcomes. It involves assessing barriers to change, understanding the target group and setting, and selecting effective strategies and measures to change behavior.
Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course
The Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course combines virtual or in-person training and 1:1 coaching. The various teaching styles helps participants develop a strong foundation of theory while ensuring the new information is appropriately put into practice.
Why Implementation Science?
Implementing a strategy that requires a long-lasting change in human behavior is one of the greatest leadership challenges for healthcare professionals. An estimated 70% of initiatives that require a change from front-line staff fail to produce results.
Implementation science provides healthcare teams the skills and tools to close the idea-to-implementation gap to attain solid execution of evidence-based practices for quality and performance improvement. This intensive training program will teach how to rise above the day-to-day grind and provide the necessary clarity, commitment, collaboration and accountability required for effective implementation.
The MHA Keystone Center is preparing for future cohorts of the Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course. Please check the MHA Member Portal for an up-to-date listing of events.
