Wennberg International Collaborative

The Wennberg International Collaborative is a research network committed to improving healthcare by examining organizational and regional variation in health care resources, utilization, and outcomes.  The Collaborative is a global community of scholars interested in comparative measurement, particularly across a country's regions and health care organizations.Its goal is to advance the understanding of the causes and consequences of unwarranted variation (i.e. variation in health care not explained by differences in population needs or preferences) around the world, leading to clinical improvement and policy change.

The Wennberg International Collaborative is a joint initiative established by David Goodman at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice and Gwyn Bevan of the London School of Economics and Political Science. It supports the examination of regional variations beyond borders through academic networking, research meetings, and mid-career fellowships. The Collaborative is currently identifying researchers in the global community with similar interests in measuring variation across health care organizations or regions.
