The step is of particular significance to guide the technology implementation process. Once the best practices are determined, the next step would be to come up with the science base for informing the efforts. The second step primarily focuses on ensuring that there are solid foundations upon which to base the technology. As aforementioned, several risks characterize technology implementation. Therefore, the third step will be to educate the technology provider about the adopted best practices and the science base in an effort at reducing errors likely to arise in the workplace environment. Then, the management should focus on capitalizing on the technological advances to translate the effective workplace strategies into widespread practice across the hospital. Numerous challenges are bound to arise in this step, and it requires constant experimentation and supervision to facilitate seamless integration of technology into the workplace environment. Upon widespread adoption of the technology, the last step would be to develop capacity in the workplace environment in relation to using the technology to be able to lower errors
