Project Summary

The goal of this Capacity Building Project is to enhance Corewell’s existing Operational Deployment System (ODS) model to support a range of different potential future HSII implementation projects. The ODS framework synchronizes the planning, prioritizing and tracking of operational and project related strategic goals; however, it is not constructed for non-clinical studies. To fill this gap, Corewell will complete the following activities:

  1. Establish a steering committee structured to perform rapid and accurate assessments of existing attributes for teams, patients and care settings involved in future HSII implementation project proposals.
  2. Assess systems, workflows, tools, and models for change management across sites to evaluate sites’ capability to successfully deploy potential HSII implementation projects. As part of this assessment, Corewell will apply newly developed tools to an already road-mapped expansion of a pilot program aimed at improving readmission rates. This will serve as a practical test of the system’s ability to scale implementation projects and identify potential challenges, barriers, resources and other aspects of operational readiness. Through this work, Corewell will develop a project feasibility tool to gauge sites’ readiness to participate in HSII implementation projects.
  3. Develop a communication and coordination triage structure to enable (1) application of the tools developed in Activity 2 to rapidly assess sites and overall organizational readiness with respect to specific HSII topic areas identified by PCORI and (2) Corewell’s proposal of topic-specific Implementation Projects that are the best fit and have the strongest potential for successful implementation given system and site characteristics.

About HSII Capacity Building Projects
Funding for HSII Capacity Building Projects was the first funding opportunity available under HSII, to support HSII Participants’ efforts to prepare for successful implementation and program evaluation as part of HSII Implementation Projects. Through HSII, HSII Participants will undertake implementation projects to actively advance the adoption of new evidence, drawn from PCORI-funded research, into their care delivery settings.
