|Perceived characteristics of innovations and their definitions (according to Rogers, 2003)|
|Observability||The degree to which the results of an innovation are visible* to others|
|Trialability||The degree to which an innovation may be experimented with on a limited basis|
|Simplicity||The degree to which an innovation is perceived as not difficult to understand and use|
|Compatibility||The degree to which an innovation is perceived as being consistent with the existing values, past experiences and needs of potential adopters|
|Relative advantage||The degree to which an innovation is perceived as better than the idea it supersedes|
Note:* In the case of a model of care that is an untangible innovation, we used the following definition: The degree to which the results of an innovation are understandable to individuals or known by the community.
