The Society of Hospital Medicine’s (SHM's) award-winning Mentored Implementation Model is the foundation of several of the organization’s signature quality initiatives. In Mentored Implementation (MI), national experts (mentors) “coach” hospital team members, educating them on best practices in the implementation of specific quality interventions at their institution. SHM's Quality Improvement Implementation Toolkits document the information and tools needed to lead the quality improvement project.
The goal of SHM's Mentored Implementation programs is to successfully operationalize these quality interventions at institutions with added support from leading experts in the field. Mentors meet with their mentee sites via a series of conference calls, webinars, e-mails and on-site visits to provide continuous support and guidance from the planning through the implementation phases of the intervention. This unique approach allows sites to utilize their mentor's expertise in a one-to one professional relationship.
Additionally, participating sites and mentors have the opportunity to network with other institutions through exclusive access to online communities, where resources, tools, information and questions are shared among all participants. The collaborative includes participating sites and all information is shared securely among this vibrant community.
