​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Through an “all teach, all learn” network design, the IHI Health Improvement Alliance Europe seeks innovative health care designs that can be adapted successfully to European health systems and national contexts.

The Alliance’s Design
The group’s learning opportunities are driven by and for members, with a focus on innovations relevant to system challenges and improvement aims in Europe. Through its work, leaders share and test improvements in new systems and spread successful learning at a national scale.
HIAE Design 
Through a series of in-person meetings, webinars and workgroups, recent initiatives have focused on achieving the best care at affordable cost in the face of changing demographics, increasing chronic illness, and economic challenges, including:
  • An aging population
  • An increase in the number of service users with chronic diseases
  • An escalation in health care costs and simultaneous government and regional spending cuts
  • The aftermath of COVID-19
HIAE Principles
To foster collaboration among members, the HIAE operates under the following principles:
  • Accept and encourage messiness: the pathway to health care improvement is challenging and in order to progress we must accept that the way forward will be messy and encourage bold new ideas that add to the messiness
  • Share assets and ideas: everyone has something to share, and when we share freely and openly we accelerate the pace of testing, change, and improvement
  • Be energising and fun: raise each other’s joy in work by bringing energy and enthusiasm to the Alliance
  • Build strong relationships: we are more generative, impactful, and bold when we work together, across silos, and between regions
  • All teach, all learn: We are all willing to teach and be taught, drawing upon the collective knowledge and experience we share as an Alliance. We learn across cultures and share knowledge across all health systems, leveraging our collective cultural identities and regional differences.​
