Healthcare costs in our country are out of control.
The U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other country. Right now, we’re spending 17% of our GDP, and that’s expected to rise to 20% in the coming years. To combat rising healthcare costs, the Institute for Health Improvement (IHI) introduced the concept of the Triple Aim, a framework that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has taken on to help optimize healthcare systems:
Improve patient care.
Reduce healthcare costs.
Improve population health.
And now, as we move into the age of value-based care, healthcare industry leaders are discussing one more initiative, clinician experience, essentially creating a “quadruple aim” for lower healthcare costs and better outcomes:
Reducing reporting burdens.
Improving physician satisfaction.
Bringing patients and doctors together at the point of care.
