For more than 30 years, IHI has been committed to helping grow and sustain a movement to improve health and health care for all. Working with the global IHI community, we motivate and build the will for change, identify and test innovative models of care, and ensure the broadest possible adoption of proven practices that improve individual and population health.
To accomplish this important work, we cannot — and do not — work alone. IHI engages willing partners through rich collaborative improvement initiatives. IHI initiatives are typically large in scale — months or years in duration, engaging diverse teams from across the health care community and the world to work collaboratively on a broad array of topics.
