QUERI Implementation Roadmap

Transforming Care by Optimizing Implementation Efforts

The QUERI Implementation Roadmap is a comprehensive, practical guide for health care practitioners and researchers to plan and deploy methods to support uptake of effective practices in routine care settings.

The Roadmap is essential to a learning organization because without implementation planning at all levels of the health system, it can take years for a fraction of effective health care practices to reach patients who need them the most.

Pearls of the Roadmap include:

  • Tools and methods to support implementation efforts based on strong science
  • User-friendly, practical approach to overcome barriers and resource constraints, with case studies
  • Strategies to align health system goals, provider and patient needs

The QUERI Roadmap Guide de-mystifies the application of implementation strategies and rigorous evaluation of these efforts to support and empower practitioners and inform policy and population health improvements.

Combining real-world experience with state-of-the art implementation and quality improvement science, the QUERI Roadmap Guide makes implementation science usable and practical for investigators and practitioners to the ultimate benefit of patients.

Produced by implementation scientists at QUERI’s Center for Evaluation and Implementation Resources (CEIR) with contributions from >50 multi-disciplinary experts and health system leaders, the Roadmap Guide reduces the gap between evidence and practice through strong quality improvement efforts
