<div><p>The Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC) organized and coordinated a multicenter learning collaborative, National Initiative V (NI V), focused on community health and health inequity. A pre–post descriptive study was designed to examine the outcomes of the AIAMC NI V. Data were collected from pre- and post-assessment surveys as well as a project milestone self-assessment survey. Twenty-nine institutions participated. By the conclusion of the NI, the majority of institutions had completed at least 1 of the milestones in each of the pre-work/background (65.52%), measurement (62.07%), methods (62.07%), and implement/sustain (20.69%) domains. Institutions reported a significant association between their readiness assessments prior to the start of the NI compared with their status of activities on completion. Milestone achievement is significantly associated with 3 of the assessment items. Learning collaboratives with thoughtfully integrated structure and support can be impactful on topic readiness for the participating organizations.</p></div>
