Many health plans across the United States have embraced the Triple Aim as an organizing framework to optimally serve their members. In this vein, plans are recognizing the value of quality improvement methods, including the Model for Improvement, as a key to moving toward improved partnerships with providers and services for members.
IHI’s approach to working with health plans and insurers centers on enhancing partnerships with the provider community — moving toward true collaboration to find solutions to underlying barriers that impede efforts to improve health care while reducing per capita costs.
IHI understands the critical role of health plans in driving large-scale Triple Aim results. We offer a broad portfolio of programs and resources that are relevant to the needs of health plans — whether that's helping to enhance the quality improvement and coaching skills of health plan staff, or improvement that focuses on specific areas of care delivery such as integration of behavioral health care with primary care or improving perinatal outcomes.
