What is PRISM?

The Practical Implementation Sustainability Model (PRISM) includes key, multilevel contextual factors relevant to program implementation (including RE-AIM outcomes) throughout all stages from planning through sustainment.

How do PRISM and RE-AIM Fit Together?

Please find the slide the side note to the below video here along with a summary of the below video.

PRISM, the Practical Robust Implementation and Sustainability Model consists of two main parts: the PRISM contextual domains and the RE-AIM outcomes. The PRISM contextual domains include multi-level considerations for the characteristics of the intervention including perspectives of stakeholders from both individuals and settings, the characteristics of diverse recipients, the implementation and sustainability infrastructure, and the external environment.  The Implementation and Sustainability Infrastructure is one of the most important domain in PRISM and is concerned with issues such as the
resources available to support initial implementation and sustained delivery of
the intervention. We expect that that the Implementation and Sustainability Infrastructure
will dynamically change and should be evaluated on an ongoing basis. T
he External environment includes factors such as policies and regulations, financial incentives or disincentives, clinical practice guidelines, and historical considerations.

At the most basic level, PRISM helps us identify and describe multi-level contextual predictors of the RE-AIM outcomes and make connections between context and critical outcomes of reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance.
