At the heart of IHI's work is the science of improvement — an applied science that emphasizes innovation, rapid-cycle testing in the field, and spread in order to generate learning about what changes, in which contexts, produce improvements.
Whether in daily work, departmental processes, or across a system, the application of improvement methods can lead to better health outcomes and experiences for our patients, as well as a more effective and joyful workforce.
IHI offers a variety of opportunities for individuals, teams, and organizations to learn improvement methods, including in-person and online programs as well as tools and other resources.
