Implementation activities (IMPL) refer to configuration, customization and other steps that are needed for health information technologies to function for a specific organization or group of end-users. For example, with clinical decision support, the local implementation will consider end-user workflows to identify the points at which to present the CDS, determine which data fields in  local databases will map to data fields that drive the CDS, and educate end-users about important features of the CDS. Typically this involves translation of guideline recommendations from L3 to L4 or other local adaptation (localization).
