This project examines the barriers and potential challenges in implementing medical innovations and the possible preemptive measures that can be addressed early to increase the uptake of life-saving medical innovations. We consider the importance of appropriate, timely, and user-defined implementation techniques as a critical component of the successful uptake of medical innovations, and use the uptake of transcatheter valve replacement therapy (TAVR)–an alternative life-saving intervention for patients at risk for surgical complications–in Ontario Canada as the practical case study of the challenges and potential instructive opportunities to establish best practices for systematic and effective innovation uptake.
