Will It Work Here? A Decisionmaker's Guide to Adopting Innovations

The Guide helps users determine if an innovation would be a good fit—or an appropriate stretch—for their health care organization by asking a series of questions. It links users to actionable Web-based tools and presents case studies that illustrate how other organizations have addressed these questions. Users will be able to answer the four overarching questions the Guide poses:

  • Does this innovation fit?
  • Should we do it here?
  • Can we do it here?
  • How can we do it here?
