“Two heads are better than one.” That sums it up. Working together on a solution, collaborating, is the best way to solve a challenge.

Sharing ideas, brainstorming, teaching each other, listening and learning, being transparent in your successes and failures – these are the hallmarks of collaboration.

Collaboration is at the heart of Premier’s mission to achieve healthcare improvement. We work as a team with our members to safely reduce costs and improve care.

How? By designing Collaboratives that are focused on the core tenets of healthcare improvement.

Our Collaboratives follow a proven formula:

  • Clearly defined goals
  • Transparency among participants
  • Rapid improvement sprints
  • Healthy competition
  • Identification and implementation of best practices
  • Face-to-face time with participants
