Using Telehealth to Achieve the Triple Aim
Read this whitepaper to learn how telehealth programs can help hospitals and health systems with each component of the Triple Aim.
The Triple Aim serves as a guiding principle for healthcare transformation, but not as a step-by-step guide for how to achieve it. Hospitals, healthcare systems and other providers commonly struggle to determine which strategies, initiatives and tools will be most eff ective for meeting their Triple Aim goals for improving the patient experience, improving the health of populations and reducing the cost of care.
One of the reasons acting on the Triple Aim is so challenging is that many of the innovations that are available to support healthcare transformation today are focused on a single component. Hospitals and health systems need to make hard decisions about how to invest resources toward- improving quality and reducing costs at the population and individual patient levels.
