Implementation

Preparing for Collaborative Care (CoCM) implementation will be unique for each health center. Pre-implementation tasks will vary depending on the services, staff, structure, and resources available at your clinic. These activities are divided into three phases across four process domains: administrative tasks, clinical protocols, workforce, and equipment. The activities in each phase should be addressed concurrently, but some tasks may be prioritized over others depending on the clinic’s needs.

1. Strategize Implementation Needs

2. Address Implementation Barriers

 3. Prepare for Patient Enrollment

How Can We Sustain Our CoCM Program?

Sustainability

After launching a CoCM, health centers must plan and actively work to sustain the model of care. These tasks include optimizing the delivery of your program through quality improvement initiatives and developing a financial model to support CoCM services.
