2Module Four AssignmentTriple Aim InitiativeThe Institute for Healthcare Improvement developed the Triple Aim Initiative as afoundation to reach enhanced performance within the healthcare system. Simultaneously, thethree dimensions work to increase patient care quality and satisfaction, improve populationhealth, and benefit communities by decreasing the per capita cost of care (IHI, 2021).The Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) developed five components to helpdevelop its concept design of the Triple Aim Initiative. The five components include: managingpopulation health, implementing a platform for cost control, renovating primary care services,making individuals and their families a primary focus, and implementing system execution andintegration methods (IHI, 2021).ImprovementsQuality of care throughout our nation is impaired due to our use of the fee-for-servicepayment system.
