Sustaining and Spreading Learning Collaboratives: Ingredients for Success


Although learning collaboratives can improve the performance of health care organizations, they do not necessarily lead to the processes and system changes needed to sustain these improvements and allow their adoption by other organizations. Building on previous Fund support for a series of community health center collaboratives led by New York City's Primary Care Development Corporation, this project will study up to three collaborative-sponsoring organizations, as well as approximately 25 participating teams, to determine what organizational characteristics contribute to the successful achievement, maintenance, and spread of improvements. This knowledge will enhance the efforts of other health care organizations to improve quality.
