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
Integrating Behavioral Health into Primary Care
This Healthcare Executive article discusses ideas for overcoming common challenges for treating patients with medical and behavioral issues in a more integrated fashion; presents a set of Collaborative Care Components for Integrated Care that have shown results in reducing cost and improving outcomes and satisfaction; and describes layers of service in full-spectrum integrated care.
Disability-Competent Care Self-Assessment Tool
Health plans and their provider partners who are working to improve care for their members with disabilities can use this tool to identify gaps in key areas, such as creating and coordinating an individualized plan of care, managing transitions, ensuring the optimal allocation of care management and services, and strengthening relationships with primary care practices. The tool was developed by IHI and The Lewin Group under a contract from the CMS Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Office (MMCO).
