EIIC's quality improvement (QI) collaboratives are based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Collaborative Model for Achieving Breakthrough Improvement. Collaboratives, which are free to participants, bring together stakeholders from various healthcare departments, hospitals, or organizations for a fixed period of time to address a specific aspect of providing care—in this case, improving emergency care for children (or improving "pediatric readiness").

Collaboratives follow a cyclical series of learning sessions, action periods, measurement and evaluation, and finally, summative publications. EIIC's QI collaboratives, once completed, typically transition into communities of practice, which are open to anyone. In addition, the collaboratives often result in the development of toolkits of resources, which are available to all.
