This study measures the effectiveness of the improvement collaborative in terms of improved staff efficiency, decreased wait times, and improved worker productivity and relates these benefits to the cost of the program. A pre-/post-intervention design  was used to compare baseline measures taken in October 2009 to the endline measures collected in May 2010. Key indicators of success were patient waiting time, staff time utilization, clients seen per staff member, staff time saved, and cost of the intervention. The study was conducted by Quality Improvement teams at five facilities.
