About IHI Collaboratives

IHI’s most intensive front-line improvement work happens in Collaboratives, nine to twelve-month programs designed for organizations committed to achieving sustainable change within a specific topic area. 

Fees & Enrollment

Enrollment Fee

Organizations or coalitions attend as a team to design and test changes at primary care sites and then to build a scale up plan based on successful tests. Typically, there is one core team with a key contact and a measurement lead and then several primary care test sites. One fee of $20,000 covers the calls, on-site participation in learning sessions for all team members (excluding travel expenses), and individualized coaching sessions from the expert faculty for 12 months. Interested organizations are encouraged to partner with health care, health plan, and community participants.

Scholarships and Discounts

A reduced rate of $10,000 per team applies to the following:
  • Federally-qualified health centers
  • Safety net hospitals
A limited number of partial scholarships is available for safety-net organizations. If you’d like to set up a conversation with one of our faculty experts to talk about how you can become part of this Collaborative, please contact

How to Enroll

During the enrollment process you will be asked to include the name and contact information for the roles below. Please have this information available before beginning registration. Organizations can send up to four participants to the face-to-face meeting.
Your Key Contact is the “captain” of the organization’s collaborative participation and is often also the Team Leader.

Your Team Leader may also be the key contact, or may be another individual who will guide the team in good project management, idea generation, testing, and implementation. This individual will also meet regularly with the organization Sponsor to review progress and results.
Your Sponsor is an organizational leader who is responsible for and accountable to the organization for the performance and results of the collaborative team. This person is not a member of the team, but is responsible for securing the resources that are required and for communicating progress to others in the organization.
