Current Implementation Status In January 2018 IDDSI framework and its detailed definitions were published in the Slovenian language, and ver 2.0 followed in spring 2020. Both documents underwent a thorough review by experts in the field. Tertiary acute care hospital UMC Ljubljana implemented the IDDSI framework at its first publishment in 2018. Although no formal national implementation consensus was accepted, regional hospitals are raising initiatives to follow the example of good clinical practice.
