Healthcare organizations continually seek to optimize healthcare performance. For years, this approach was a
three-pronged one known as the Triple Aim, with efforts focused on improved population health, enhanced
patient experience, and lower healthcare costs.
More recently, this approach has evolved to a Quadruple Aim by including a focus on improving the work life of
healthcare providers. Each of these measures are impacted by decisions made at the organizational level, and
organizations have increasingly turned to EBP to inform and justify these decisions.
To Prepare:
Read the articles by Sikka, Morath, & Leape (2015); Crabtree, Brennan, Davis, & Coyle (2016); and Kim et al.
(2016) provided in the Resources.
Reflect on how EBP might impact (or not impact) the Quadruple Aim in healthcare.
Consider the impact that EBP may have on factors impacting these quadruple aim elements, such as
preventable medical errors or healthcare delivery
