Innovation in Health Care: Achieving the Triple Aim
With US health care expenditures at $2.7 trillion per year, we would be facing significant cost pressures even if our systems were producing health outcomes superior to those of comparable nations. That our outcomes are worse indicates that we are facing a crisis.
Join Maureen Bisognano, President and CEO of the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, as she highlights how innovation can help us navigate out of this crisis. We will conclude with an opportunity to participants to discuss and network with others inspired to ignite change.
Innovative new models of care are needed to address the Triple Aim – better care, better health, lower per capita costs. Luckily for us all, new models (and the capacity to create more) are out there. Every day, health systems here in the US and abroad, are designing and testing exciting new ideas and designs. What we’re learning is that innovation isn’t accidental – it takes purpose, and effort. Come and learn how to innovate in health care and see the promising results of these new models.
Maureen Bisognano, President and CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), previously served as IHI’s Executive Vice President and COO for 15 years. She is a prominent authority on improving health care systems, whose expertise has been recognized by her elected membership to the Institute of Medicine. Bisognano advises health care leaders around the world on quality improvement, and is a tireless advocate for change. She is also an Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a Research Associate in the Brigham and Women's Hospital Division of Social Medicine and Health Inequalities.
