Data-Driven Insights and the Triple Aim

Healthcare is taking drastic steps towards improvement with the aid of data-driven insights. Tremendous opportunities are presenting themselves with the reducing of healthcare costs while improving the quality of care itself. With the assistance of complex and in depth demographics, the data accumulated in the healthcare field are readily available for practitioners across the globe.

The need for data-driven insights has never been more prominent. Healthcare practitioners have the opportunity for unlimited access to patient data. With data insights, healthcare practitioners can gain new levels of analytics, and transform the way healthcare is perceived on a global scale.

However, with performance and accountability being the two major focuses in the healthcare data industry. Patients conduct their own personal research a little differently, and instead of analytical insights towards a practitioner, individuals ask for advice or recommendations from friends. This is due to the insurmountable quantity of data available to individuals on the internet of things.

Healthcare facilities are beginning to develop a 360-degree viewpoint. A 360-degree viewpoint allows healthcare practitioners to make decisions that are based upon the most prevalent and timely patient information that has been accumulated during the individual’s lifetime. Bringing together multiple sources of data will ensure that the path chosen will be tactical and proper.

The Triple Aim is a framework that focuses on the health system performances and the efficient approach to achieving these goals.

Triple Aim 3 Dimensions

  • Improving patient experience of care
  • Improving health of populations
  • Reducing the per capita cost of healthcare

All three mechanisms of the Triple Aim must be balanced in order to reach the objective of optimizing a healthcare system. To achieve the Triple Aim procedure, healthcare organizations must expand their focus point to organize the care to meet the needs of the population. The success of this process then requires a willingness of an organization to take on new roles and to have a commitment to honest self-evaluation. Otherwise the healthcare organization will continue to play to their strengths while neglecting the aspects of the company that aren’t working properly.
