The it will help out so many

 

 

 

 

 

The cost of healthcare
in the U.S. is constantly rising every year. 
In 2015 it was reported that the cost of healthcare was 3.2 trillion and
in comparison healthcare cost was 27.2 billion in 1960(Amadeo 2017). Meaning
that the cost per person was $146 in 1960 and now it is $9,990 per person(Amadeo).
Many Americans will benefit much more with the help of the Triple Aim Initiate
because the cost of healthcare could be so much lower.

By
doing this project I learned that the cost of healthcare can be extremely high
and many people cannot afford it. With the help of the Triple Aim Initiative I
believe it will help out so many Americans that are struggling with the cost of
Healthcare. Triple Aim main focus is to improve the health of population,
Improve the experience of care, and reducing per capita costs of health care. Without
balanced attention to these three overarching aims, health care organizations
may increase quality at the expense of cost, or vice versa(McCarthy &
Klein, 2010).

The main focus of the
Triple Aim is improving the health of population, Improving the experience of
care, and reducing per capita costs of health care. I am currently a store
manager at a clothing store and I am working to become a leader in the
healthcare field. I believe this translates into my practice because as a
manager I want to make sure my customers are given the best prices and deals on
merchandise so I lower the cost of the merchandise by offering a discount.

Translation into Your
Practice

The cost of healthcare
is extremely high and many people cannot afford it. We now have the Affordable
care act that was enacted in attempts to curb the growth in healthcare spending
in the U.S. The act has help many people with the cost of healthcare. Now the
county is in a battle between Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare and
the new act Trump is trying to pass which is the American Healthcare Act. It is
believed the American Healthcare Act would not do much to help the American
people and in the end causing healthcare to remain high.

While
doing the analysis for this case study I found that individual employees were
not mentioned. The author did however discuss the steps one may take to meet
their goal or objective which were previously discussed. Five principles an
organization may use: (1) Involve

The
lead organization for the Triple Aim Initiative is The Institute of Healthcare
Improvement(IHI). The IHI is a educational community that works together to
improve healthcare and patient safety in the next generation of health professionals(2017).
This organization has mentored and worked with many other organizations to help
develop their plan

The
Triple Aim Initiatives measures success by encouraging participants to adopt
robust measures of outcome in achieving each three aims: population health,
patient experience, and per capita cost of care (McCarthy & Klein, 2010). There
is also five principles that organizations need to use when developing their
new type of care: (1) Involve both individuals and families in the design of
the new healthcare model; (2) Restructure primary care services to better serve
the population; (3) Enhance both disease prevention and health promotion
services; (4) Develop a cost-control program that helps saves money per capital
for health care; and (5) Create a support system (McCarthy & Klein, 2010).

The
U.S. Global Health Initiative (GHI) is an approach to the U.S. global health
policy that seeks to strengthen, streamline, and increase the efficiency of

principles of the GHI: (1) Focusing on women, girls and gender equality; (2)

Although it was not
discussed in this article The Health Information
Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act invested $30 billion
to stimulate the adoption and “meaningful use” of electronic health records
with the belief that such health information technology (HIT) can help achieve
the “triple aim”: better care experiences, better population health, and
reduced per-capita cost (Sood 2016).  The
electronic health records also known as EHR is a digital version of the
patients chart.

Cultural
Competency is the ability to understand, appreciate, and interact with people
from a different culture  or belief
systems than one’s own. Learning about the Triple Aim I noticed it did not
focus on different cultures or belief but more on all the organizations coming
together with the same responsibilities and that was to meet the goal of the
Triple Aim. It also focused on working to change the “more is better”
culture through transparency, education, and communication (McCarthy &
Klein, 2010).

The Quad Med develops
and manages worksite health clinics(McCarthy & Klein, 2010).  The clinics made the patients health a high
priority organized care around prevention and outcomes rather than production.  (McCarthy & Klein, 2010). They zero in on

 The Triple Aim included
three different organizations: CareOregon, Genesys Health System, and Quad Med.
The CareOregon is a healthcare plan that focused on serving Medicaid enrollees
(McCarthy & Klein, 2010). This organization was nonprofit managed and it
assisted all low-income patients even those chronic disorders.  The Genesys Health System was based in the
Metropolitan Flint, Michigan,  and this
organization assisted low-income uninsured county residents who receive basic
health care through Genesse Health Plan (McCarthy & Klein, 2010). This
organization helps to prevent chronic diseases by promoting health and
supporting patients in adopting healthy lifestyles (McCarthy & Klein,
2010).

 Overview
Of Case Study

  October of 2007 The
Triple Aim Initiative was launched by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement
(IHI). It was created to lower the rate of increase in the per capital cost of
care and also to help health care organizations better the health of a
populations patients experience of care (McCarthy & Klein, 2010). In order
to improve the experience of care they had to improve the quality, access, and
reliability that the patients receive.
