Background Implementation in healthcare is often slow and poorly reported. Results include suboptimal outcomes and adverse consequences for patients. However, promising tools to remedy implementation speed and reporting already exist – such as the evidence-based, fast-track implementation model (Fast-IM) and the comprehensive RE-AIM (reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance) reporting format.
Metods In combination, Fast-IM and RE-AIM may constitute a new best practice for fast and well-reported implementation. The aim of this article was to visualize the feasibility of the combination in practice via 3 examples concerning smoking cessation among patients, simulation-based training of healthcare professionals, and mandatory regulation.
Results Combining Fast-IM and RE-AIM is feasible and provides a useful overview of both implementation process and results.
Conclusion This article describes a new best practice for fast and well-reported implementation by combining Fast-IM and RE-AIM.
