The Triple Aim initiative calls for redesigning the health care delivery system to simultaneously accomplish 3 primary objectives: improve the health of the population, enhance patient care (including quality of, access to, and reliability of care), and reduce or at least control the per capita cost of care. Triple Aim builds off the Institute of Medicine’s 6 aims for improvement in the delivery of health care in the United States as outlined in a 2001 report, “Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century”.
