Full implementation occurs when the program is integrated into the service, organization, and system settings. The processes and procedures to provide the selected program are now in place.

It now becomes important to maintain and improve the program through excellent monitoring and purposeful improvement to avoid entering program drift (that is, edging toward a lack of fidelity).
