“This report focuses specifically on sustainability, partnerships, and effective teamwork—which were recognized by THQIT grantees as critical aspects of successful health IT implementation.

This report offers insights into four questions:
●● Sustainability: How likely was the projects’ purposeful use of health IT to be sustained and what factors influence the sustainability of health IT projects?
●● Vendors: How should patient care delivery organizations engage and work with health IT vendors?
●● Other Cross-Organization Partnerships: How can health care organizations work together to facilitate health IT implementation?
●● End Users: What methods of involving intended end users of grant-featured health IT did grantees find most valuable?”
