Improving healthcare quality has been firmly on the U.S. healthcare system's radar since at least 1999, when the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System. Several iterations later, the framework for making healthcare better settled in 2008 on three goas—improving the patient experience of care, improving population health, and reducing per capita cost, an approach developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), known as the "Triple Aim." Since then, this strategy, adopted widely by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and other institutions, has been augmented with an additional goal, improvement of the clinician experience, creating what is now commonly known as the "Quadruple Aim."
This blog post is the first in our blog series based on the HealthStream ebook, The Quadruple Aim, that explores this effort to improve and reform the provision of U.S. healthcare.Its chapters, based on each of the four aims, include:
