ImpleMentAll (IMA)

ImpleMentAll is an European collaboration towards faster and more effective implementation of eHealth interventions. The project’s raison d’être is founded on the notion that implementation of new services and technologies is time-consuming and costly– and often fails completely – not least in the healthcare domain. Solidly based in research, and in a collaboration spanning from all corners of Europe to Australia, the project will construct its answer to this widespread problem.

 Objectives 

1. To develop a generic Integrated Theory-based Framework for Intervention Tailoring Strategies (the ItFits-toolkit) for data-driven tailored implementation of evidence-based eHealth services.

2. To demonstrate the impact of the ItFits toolkit on the implementation of eHealth for common mental disorders (iCBT) in 9 European countries (2 of which are Low and Middle Income Countries), and Australia.

3. To disseminate the validated toolkit in various healthcare contexts across Europe. ImpleMentAll is a true multidisciplinary, international collaboration that unites key experts in clinical practice, health, innovation, clinical research, and implementation science. The project consortium has been built with the aim of improving eHealth implementation in not only prosperous nations but all nations regardless of their economic status.

The Advisory Board

Stakeholders such as decision makers, policy makers, and experts in for example public health systems, eHealth, and implementation science, will play an important role in the various phases of the project. The external Advisory Board will be formed on the basis of a stakeholder analysis identifying all relevant stakeholders on national and international levels, linked to the project partners and independent alike.

ImpleMentAll has chosen to have one Advisory Board comprising all stakeholders to avoid a silo situation. This way, the different stakeholder groups can interact and develop advice together. If needed and relevant, working groups focusing on specific topics will be created. The patients will be represented by an external stakeholder linked to GAMIAN-Europe that will support where needed.

The Advisory Board will provide expert input to the consortium where relevant and necessary. Throughout the project, various consultations and knowledge transfer meetings with the Advisory Board will be organised both online and face-to-face, e.g. during consortium meetings. Structured questioning and answering methods will be developed such as expert reviews, participant observers, and knowledge seminars. Members of the board will be informed about the characteristics, features, goals, and expectations of the ImpleMentAll implementation activities and advice and feedback will be collected.

The dissemination and communication

By publication of newsletters and organizing ‘patients advisory board meetings’ on a regular basis, GAMIAN-Europe will take care of the transfer of information about the project in two directions, i.e. from the project partners to public (patients) by the newsletters and from the patients to the project partners and other stakeholders by the feedback given by the patient advisory board.
