HHS Evaluates Progress Toward Triple Aim

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the 2015 Annual Progress Report on the National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care. This report details the initiative’s progress toward realizing the Triple Aim of better care, lower costs, and improved health, as well as the strategies used to achieve these goals. HHS identified the following themes, in evaluation of progress on the Triple Aim:

  • Half of patient safety measures improved, including a 17 percent decrease in hospital-acquired condition rates.
  • Person-centered care improved, particularly for children.
  • Care coordination improved, with enhanced discharge processes and adoption of health information technologies.
  • Effective treatment in hospitals improved, based on measures reported on the Hospital Compare website.
  • The cost of care plateaued, after increased costs from 2002 to 2010.
  • The rate of adults without insurance decreased substantially through increased use of health insurance marketplaces and Medicaid expansion.
