Abstract:

Our objective was to identify the influencing factors associated with the implementation of the INTERACT (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) Quality Improvement program within a national healthcare system. INTERACT focuses on early identification and management of changes in residents' condition leading to a reduction in potentially preventable hospital transfers. The Consolidated Framework was used to evaluate implementation data from eight VA Community Living Centers. Qualitative implementation data suggest two influencing Consolidated Framework domains had a strong influence: 1) key attributes of the intervention (e.g., adaptability or complexity) and 2) internal organizational factors (e.g., culture or compatibility). Using the Consolidated Framework can assist future adaptations to this and other complex quality improvement initiatives.
