Adoption of Effective BSSR in Practice

Implementation science in BSSR

Most NIH protocols begin with a set idea and plan for implementation that the PI would like to study. OBSSR should fund implementation science research which begins with a problem needing solving and then involves scientists, practitioners, and patients/customers to come up with an idea based on best practices from prior research and local experience. That idea is tested in a concise area to provide data on likely impact, cost, and cost-effectiveness or cost-savings. Resulting approaches from successful initial "rapid cycle innovation" are then taken to scale and then studied again for impact. THAT is what OBSSR should be funding because the up-front work of developing a scalable idea has to be paid for in addition to funding the dissemination study.
