CMS Report: Healthcare Industry Makes “Clear Progress ” In Triple Aim Measures

According to a new report from CMS, the country’s healthcare system has made “clear progress” in improving its delivery of the “Triply Aim” of improved care, improved health and reduced costs. Of 119 publicly disclosed performance rates for seven quality reporting programs, 5 percent improved between 2006 and 2012. In addition, approximately 35 percent of these measures were classified as high-performing, or had performance rates exceeding 90 percent. The report also found improvements in other areas, including inpatient health failure measures and inpatient hospital surgical process measures. Over the study period, racial and ethnic disparities in care also decreased and improved most among Hispanics, blacks and Asians.
