Short Abstract:

This issue brief presents cross-site patterns of system implementation. These patterns emerged from the analysis of locally identified implementation factors that stakeholders considered critical to system of care development. This overview was prepared by Research and Training Center for Children's Mental Health investigators Sharon Hodges, Nathaniel Israel, Kathleen Ferreira, & Jessica Mazza


 This issue brief presents cross-site patterns of system implementation based on lessons learned from data collected in Phases I and II of Case Studies of System Implementation. The issue brief offers a suggested model in which established system of care (SOC) communities leverage change. A description of the model, lessons learned from established SOC communities and broad guidelines for the use of implementation factors are provided.

System Implementation Issue Briefs

There is still much to learn about what factors are critical in bringing about system change. This series of issues briefs, based on findings from Case Studies of System Implementation, will provide readers with a summary of lessons learned from established system of care communities. The briefs will offer concrete examples of how these communities have successfully developed their systems of care. The series begins with lessons learned during Phases I and II of the study and includes a description of methods of data collection and analysis.
