Hands-On Implementation Support for Hospitals’ Most Complex Challenges

Our team has over 40 years of experience in delivering implementation support and works with leadership to define the appropriate level of implementation support required for improved outcomes and diagnostics. Every implementation support project is customized to fit the identified opportunities, available internal capacity and the requirement to achieve quantifiable outcomes. 

Types of Implementation Support We Offer

  • Project director support and assistance. Our implementation support experts provide direct assistance to a surgery implementation task force – which includes four to six consultant days per month. Four to six months of implementation support is generally required.


  • Facilitated the design of key elements of the perioperative program. This type of implementation support involves presurgical screening, scheduling, block management programming or sterile processing design.


  • Preparation of detailed recommended program design components. Examples of this include job descriptions, policies, and procedures, training programs, forms, step-by-step implementation plans, etc. This option is generally utilized by organizations with a large number of surgery program changes, that want to achieve implementation quickly or have limited internal staff.


  • Full-time, three-quarter-time or half-time, on-site Implementation Support Consultant. A Sullivan team member can personally direct all or specific parts of detailed design and implementation processes. These personnel are experts in the specific field requiring comprehensive redesign and/or experienced perioperative change managers/facilitators.


  • All or some combination of the above. We believe in providing customized implementation support tailored to your unique challenges, needs, and goals.
