Like many U.S. health systems, Allina Health understands the importance of the Triple Aim in today’s healthcare environment—as the industry confronts rising costs along with inadequate quality of care. With the move toward value-based care, these factors will increasingly impact market share. Allina is responding with its Clinical Value Process initiative. The organization uses this fully integrated multidisciplinary strategy to make outcomes improvement decisions and measure both the quality and fiscal performance of improvement projects. Key elements of Clinical Value Process include:
- Reducing variation.
- Organizing for a systemwide improvement plan.
- Using data to identify improvement opportunities and monitor progress.
