Upcoming  Media Teleconference Draws on Examples from Newly Published Book, Pursuing The Triple Aim

WHAT: The Institute for Healthcare Improvement will host a media briefing on May 4th to describe groundbreaking new approaches to health care delivery in the US, many of which reflect a growing consensus among local and multiple stakeholders that “business as usual” in health care is no longer sustainable or acceptable.  The discussion coincides with publication of Pursuing the Triple Aim: Seven Innovators Show the Way to Better Care, Better Health, and Lower Costs (April 2012, Jossey-Bass) by IHI President and CEO Maureen Bisognano and leading health care author Charles Kenney. The book chronicles innovations currently underway in several states aimed at greater coordination of care and better outcomes for diverse populations. These new models, the authors suggest, are critical and deserve to be studied and built upon by other communities and the country as a whole.

WHO: Participants in the media briefing will include:

  • ·         Maureen Bisognano, President and CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement; co-author, Pursuing the Triple Aim
  • ·         Charles Kenney, leading health care author; co-author, Pursuing the Triple Aim
