The Triple Aim of Healthcare

The physicians of 307Health believe in the Triple Aim of healthcare. We believe that a direct primary care service model such as 307Health is better suited to support these three important aims than the traditional fee-for-service model.


The Triple Aim has been described by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement as a way to optimize healthcare for individuals and communities by focusing on three areas:

  • AIM #1 – Improve the Patient Experience. Care is available when the patient wants and needs it from a trusted provider.
  • AIM #2 – Improve Population Health. Care measurably improves with a focus on systems for preventive care and management of chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.
  • AIM #3 – Decrease the Per Capita Cost of Healthcare. Research show that DPC can decrease the per capita cost of healthcare in many ways – including decreased inappropriate use of the Emergency Department and decrease hospital admission rates.
