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
IOM Identifies Streamlined Standardized Performance Measures for Health and Health Care
A recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, “Vital Signs: Core Metrics for Health and Health Care Progress,” highlights a streamlined set of standardized measures for improving health and health care, including life expectancy, healthy communities, preventive services, care access, patient safety, care match with patient goals, population spending burden, and others. In a JAMA Viewpoint, Drs. David Blumenthal and J. Michael McGinnis comment on the report.
The CHI Navigator website is a one-stop shop for people who lead or participate in community health improvement (CHI) work within hospitals and health systems, public health agencies, and other community organizations. It includes expert-vetted tools and resources for depicting visually the who, what, where, and how of improving community health; making the case for collaborative approaches to CHI; establishing and maintaining effective collaborations; and finding interventions that work for the greatest impact on health and well-being for all.
A Team Guide for Improving Primary Care
This online tool, developed by the MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation, helps primary care practices build high-functioning teams. The Guide is based on innovative approaches of 31 outstanding US primary care practices that participated in the Learning from Effective Ambulatory Practices (LEAP) program. Building high-functioning primary care teams is a core part of the curriculum at IHI’s Transforming Primary Care Practices seminar on June 16-18.
Asset-Based Approaches in Health Care
Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) is a method for promoting and strengthening the factors that exist in communities to support good health and wellbeing, protect against poor health, and foster communities and networks that sustain health. This Health Foundation report clearly describes ABCD, the evidence to support its use, and case studies describing its application. ABCD is widely used by organizations, coalitions, and communities that are working to improve the health of their communities. Learn more and become part of this effort by joining the 100 Million Healthier Lives initiative.
