Delivery Models Essay

Why are some populations healthier than others? Why do those who live in a lower socioeconomic part of the United States have poor health outcomes? A society in which all people can achieve their full potential for health and well-being across their lifespan which requires eliminating health disparities, achieving health equity, and attaining health literacy is the vision and health goals of Healthy People 2030 (Jackson et al., 2020). The United States spends less on addressing socioeconomic factors that influence population health, and more on medical care, $3.35 trillion in 2016, which accounts for 18.1% of gross domestic product (Wilkinson et al., 2017). Ineffective care, overtreatment, and failure in care coordination has contributed to more than $1 trillion in waste each year (Wilkinson et al., 2017). Health inequities, such as race and ethnicity, need to be addressed, and the elimination of these two disparities alone could reduce medical care costs by $230 billion in one year (Wilkinson et al., 2017). People of color and individuals of low income face more barriers to care, which contributes to limited healthcare access and outcomes, at an unnecessary cost (Salmond & Echevarria, 2017). For this country to achieve health equity, we need to invest in housing, food security (this is true now more than ever), maternal and early childhood development, digital technologies, and income to improve overall population health (Wilkinson et al., 2017). Health equity is an important and necessary part of the puzzle when looking at health care reform and Triple Aim. Triple Aim as it relates to population health management, current trends in health care delivery models, and how quality and safety impact the ways in which health care is delivered will be discussed in this paper.

Triple Aim and Population Health Management

Population health is becoming one of the most popular concepts studied when looking at how to optimize the healthcare system in the United States. Population health is part of the key components of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI’s) Triple Aim, a framework which focuses on improving the patient experience, improving health outcomes for populations of patients, and reducing the cost of healthcare per capita (Swarthout & Bishop, 2017). Population health encompasses the impact of educational differences, unjust disparities, and income inequality by focusing on the underlying cause of the illness (Swarthout & Bishop, 2017). Population health management is a patient-centered, integrated care delivery model based on collaborative and coordinated processes built upon disease management protocols as well as evidence-based
