Course Offered to Close Gap Between Recommended and Provided Care

Posted on July 26, 2019

Implementation Science Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Implementation science takes evidence-based ideas and transforms them into routine practice by breaking down barriers and finding effective ways to change behavior and improve results organizationwide.

In the healthcare realm, it can reduce costs, eradicate ineffective practices, and develop solutions for long-term success and continuous improvement. Ultimately, understanding implementation science can help providers move beyond the status quo to deliver the kinds of care that have proved to be the most valuable.

The MHA Keystone Center, in conjunction with Vlasic & Roth, will soon host the Implementation Science: Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course. The program will take trainees through the framework required to facilitate the implementation process and achieve measurable and sustainable results.

The program consists of three parts, each of which is required to complete the course: an in-depth, online training component; an in-person boot camp event; and an online exam.

  • Registration for the program must be completed by Sept. 8. The online coursework will take approximately eight to 10 hours and must be completed before the boot camp event. This component introduces participants to implementation science frameworks and provides the necessary background for meaningful participation in the boot camp event. Registered participants will receive access to the online training component Sept. 1 via office and/or home computers.
  • The boot camp will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 15 at the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, Lansing. It will focus on collaboratively solving practical implementation challenges with peers and subject matter experts.
  • Following the in-person event, participants will complete an online debrief and exam to ensure content mastery. Upon successful completion of the course and test, participants will earn certification as an Implementation Influencer.
