In the Mayo Clinic Model of Diffusion, diffusion of best practices depends on three primary enablers-culture, engineering, and infrastructure/systems support-and five key elements-leadership, Value Creation Teams, diffusion actions, operational implementation, and best practice review and maintenance. After a best practice is approved, it moves into the managed diffusion phase. Diffusion managers at each site shepherd this diffusion process, serving as "agents" to help carry out the change. Mayo Clinic has used this model to implement 14 best practices across the entire system of 24 hospitals in six states.
