Each clinic or physician will need to follow a number of steps to ensure that CII/CPAR implementation is successful. Some steps will only need to be done once and some will be ongoing processes to incorporate into your clinic’s workflows. Below are the tools and resources available to support you as you move through these CII/CPAR implementation steps. For an overview of the steps, please see the CII/CPAR Clinic Journey Checklist.
