Implementation Toolkits | Quality & Innovation Initiatives

The Society of Hospital Medicine’s (SHM’s) Implementation Toolkits provide hospital-based caregivers the information and tools they need to lead quality improvement projects on specific clinical topics.

Each toolkit begins with setting goals and continues through post-implementation tasks including analyzing outcomes and sustaining improvements. They are designed to enhance the efficiency and reliability of your quality improvement efforts.

All of the methods, tools, information and recommendations in SHM’s Implementation toolkits are based on proven principles of quality improvement, personal experience and evidence-based medicine. Topics covered include care for hospitalized patients around care transitions, glycemic control, VTE and medication reconciliation.

Each toolkit includes information on:

  • How to use the resources
  • Getting started
  • Project planning and implementation
  • Monitoring and learning
  • Continuing to improve
  • Sample protocols, order sets, and other tools
