In this “Outcome-Based Research: Optimizing the End Results of Healthcare” seminar, we will review how to design clinical and population health research studies for the health of our communities, school systems, and all our patients. This will primarily focus on the “Triple Aim” framework developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, which describes an approach to optimizing health system performance. We will use a case-based approach for including the triple aims simultaneously in community-based research. The triple aims are: improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction); improving the health of populations; and reducing the per capita cost of health care.
Participants can earn 3 CNE points by attending this research seminar.
