Against the Odds: How this Small Community Hospital Used Six Strategies to Succeed in Value-Based Care

The constant thread weaving through every healthcare organizational strategy should be adherence to the Triple Aim. But with uncertainty generated by the changes at the federal level, healthcare organizations may be tempted to put their value-based care plans on hold.

1.) Use Leadership and Team Structure to Support Improvement
2.) Drive Down Costs
3.) Reduce Unnecessary Waste
4.) Encourage the Learning Organization
5.) Prioritize Patient Education
6.) Track Data and Outcomes
This blog cites one small medical center with odds stacked against it, and how it is managing to not only weather the changes, but also distinguish itself by staying true to the values of the Triple Aim.
