The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has laid out an approach to optimizethe healthcare system deemed the “Triple Aim.”2 The IHI believes we mustsimultaneously pursue three dimensions: improving the patient’s experienceof care, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs.
