Triple Aim for Populations

Our goal: Drive the Triple Aim, simultaneously improving the health of the population, enhancing the experience and outcomes of the patient, and reducing per capita cost of care for the benefit of communities. More >>
The Triple Aim framework serves as the foundation for organizations and communities to successfully navigate the transition from a focus on health care to optimizing health for individuals and populations.

In the Spotlight

Transforming the Health Care Response to Intimate Partner Violence
This JAMA Viewpoint discusses how Kaiser Permanente is addressing domestic violence (also referred to as intimate partner violence) using an innovative systems model approach, improvement methodology, health information technology, and implementation science. This care delivery innovation was associated with a substantial improvement in a health care system response to intimate partner violence, a medical and public health problem regarded by many as “intractable.”

Tools for Building Clinic-Community Partnerships to Support Chronic Disease Control and Prevention
This document contains a framework and checklists that community/clinical partners can use to build community support for chronic disease care and management. The material was developed by the Diabetes Initiative, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Those interested in presenting at IHI’s 18th Annual Summit on Improving Patient Care in the Office Practice and Community are invited to submit a proposal by September 1.

Do Small Physician Practices Have a Future?
This Commonwealth Fund blog post explores the question of whether MACRA (the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act) will favor larger practices at the expense of smaller ones. The authors examine recent trends and suggest ways that small practices can be supported during the transition to value-based reimbursement. Primary care transformation and its impact on clinicians and patients will be addressed in sessions at IHI’s 18th Annual Summit on Improving Patient Care in the Office Practice and Community, which is now accepting speaker proposals.

International Network of Mental Health Quality Improvers
This IHI blog post highlights efforts to use QI techniques to tackle complex problems in mental health services, including development of a Mental Health Care Trigger Tool, inviting service users to be members of improvement teams, improving coordination between inpatient and community settings, and violence reduction. Mental health advocates and change agents will be coming together for the IHI Virtual Expedition on Behavioral Health Integration: Beyond the Basics that begins August 17.
