From: Implementation and sustainment of diverse practices in a large integrated health system: a mixed methods study

  1. a4 teams had missing data
  2. bBased on open-ended responses to the question, “How likely is it that the practice will continue to be used at your site?” at the end of the 6-month initial implementation period
  3. cBased on responses to emailed survey asking, “Is the Gold Status Practice still used at your facility? Why/why not?” 1.5 years after initial implementation period
  4. dBased on comparison of anticipated sustainment and reported 1.5-year sustainment. Coded as yes, if anticipated sustainment AND reported sustained use. Coded as no, if significant challenges anticipated AND reported 1.5-year partial sustainment or not sustained
  5. eTwo-way concordance of ratings/responses
