Discuss some of the benefits and/or challenges of implementing the NPSG in a health care organization?
Overview: The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Triple Aim Initiative serves to change health care delivery by: (1) improving the patients’ experience of care; (2) improving the health of populations; and (3) reducing the per capita cost of health care (Nickitas, Middaugh, & Feeg, 2019). This week’s module explores how we can improve the patient care experience, increase the quality of care, reduce the cost of care thereby improving the health of the populations. In addition, we will examine the concept of implementing patient/person-centered care (PCC) in our current healthcare practice. The role of Joint Commission and other regulatory agencies, and patient and healthcare worker safety will be a major focus. Quality measurements such as patient satisfaction surveys and error control mechanisms will be explored. Learning Materials: Nickitas, D. M., Middaugh, D. J., & Feeg, V. D. (2019).
