Triple Aim Measurement Toolkit for Health Centers
What can community health centers do to demonstrate value to stakeholders—such as payers, providers, and patients—in a changing payment landscape? They can measure and analyze health outcomes, patient experience, and cost together across a subpopulation or health topic and display those data simultaneously. The Triple Aim is a framework that community health centers can use to help achieve three goals: improve the individual experience of care, improve the health of populations, and reduce the per capita costs of care for populations.
To help health centers do this, AIR worked with health center partners in California to develop the Triple Aim Measurement Toolkit for Health Centers. The Toolkit, formerly called the Innovation Scorekeeper Tool, includes videos, didactic lessons, a case study, sample visualizations, and downloadable resources. It offers six steps for health centers to execute a Triple Aim measurement strategy and prepare for value-based payment, which rewards providers and practices for performance over volume.
The project, funded by Blue Shield of California Foundation, includes a Triple Aim Measurement for Health Centers website and a Triple Aim Measurement Toolkit webinar geared to community health centers.
