Webinar on past experiences that can further ImpleMentAll

“If you want to be perfect, or if you want to be able to improve stuff, then you need to change, and that is actually what we are doing with implementation.” With this statement, Christiaan Vis effectively demonstrates how important the work on ImpleMentAll is and how big an impact the project will have on the healthcare sectors throughout the world, suggesting that, as a result, they will improve and maybe even be perfected. If you are interested in listening to the webinar, it can be found here. If you have any experiences or anecdotes about working with implementation in the healthcare sector or elsewhere, please post it in the comment section and let’s get a debate going!

Why do we need ImpleMentAll?

This is a general problem, which is why we address it with a broad focus on eHealth in any shape or form. Still, our research aims demand comparability and therefore we have chosen one intervention for the study: internet-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (iCBT). This particular intervention was deemed the most suitable because of its comprehensive evidence base, the general need for it in many parts of the world, and the widespread experience with implementation of this type of intervention.
The average time from when evidence has been established for a given new treatment method till it is considered generally implemented and normalised is 18 years. In RSD, we have been developing, testing, and implementing eHealth solutions – learning the hard way that it takes 8-9 years for a technically ready solution to reach normalisation in a hospital, region, or municipality. In the light of the general technological development, which is characterised by a much greater speed, there is a major discrepancy between the time for normalisation and the technological development, which means that we end up implementing obsolete solutions. Therefore, we need tools for implementing in a knowledge-based way, fast, and right. The purpose of IMA is to develop and validate these tools and we have high hopes for their effect.
Claus Duedal Pedersen, Project Coordinator: “IMA transforms past European experience on eHealth implementation into practical tools, which can make a real difference for efficient implementation processes.”
Do you have any concrete experiences with eHealth or eMental health implementation, that you think we should know about?
Welcome to our blog!

We will blog about the topics that the project has been born with, e.g. implementation science, Normalization Process Theory, eHealth, and eMental health, but also the themes, issues, challenges, and successes that we will meet on our journey towards completion in 2021. We hope that you will give our blog a good reception and follow it as it unfolds over the next couple of years.
