After decades of development, testing, and piloting of e(mental)Health services, more and more attention is now given to implementation and - not least - research into the processes behind it. To this day, few clinical innovations make it into routine care, and those that do, take many years to get there.
ImpleMentAll was born out of this challenge and, as an EU-funded project under Horizon 2020, collects partners from all corners of Europe and Australia to come up with an evidence-informed answer to the slow, costly, and often fruitless implementation efforts experienced by healthcare providers worldwide.
The project has just reached a crucial phase: the finalisation of its online implementation tool (the ItFits-toolkit) and the beginning of data collection, which will continue over the next couple of years.
The project is run by the Region of Southern Denmark (Centre for Innovative Medical Technology at Odense University Hospital) in close collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Also, the project's midterm workshop is coming up and has taken the shape of a track at the WHINN conference: Track 7 "Implementing eHealth - is it really that difficult?
