The Triple Aim framework was introduced in 2007 by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. The goal is to simultaneously
- improve the patient care experience
- improve the health of a population, and
- reduce per capita health care costs.
- improving the work life of health care providers, including clinicians and staff.
At the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, we use the acronym I.E. C.A.R.E.S to provide a framework for humanism in healthcare: Integrity, Excellence, Compassion, Altruism, Respect, Empathy, and Service.
