Achieving The Quadruple Aim In Health Care

(Ann Fam Med. Nov-Dec 2014;12(6):573-6. doi: 10.1370/afm.1713.)

In meeting the specific needs of our population, we are uniquely placed to achieve the “quadruple aim” in health care:

Enhancing the patient experience by motivating and engaging patients to actively participate in their care and improve their outcomes.

Improving population health by managing common, high-risk, chronic conditions,

Reducing costs of care by reducing Emergency Department visits, hospitalizations and dependency that result from recurrent events by investing in efficient, inexpensive, close follow-up.

Improving provider satisfaction by building and leveraging tools and resources to enhance efficiency for the provider and allow them to provide better holistic care while reducing documentation burden thereby reducing provider fatigue and burnout.
