Hospitals strive to achieve the Triple Aim. This collection of case studies features three examples:
Lee Memorial Health System, Fort Meyer, Fla.
- Lee Memorial Health System is building a new health care campus on a 33-acre parcel of land located in South Lee County, Fla. This campus will offer a wide array of services and include an emergency room, outpatient surgery center, clinical decision unit, rehabilitation facilities and laboratory — but no hospital beds.
Summa Health System, Akron, Ohio
- Summa Health System transitioned care delivery services to a health care campus model and eliminated inpatient services at Summa Wadsworth-Rittman Hospital, due to decreasing patient volumes.
Norton Healthcare, Louisville, Ken.
- The $118 million redesign involved creating rooms that could be used for multiple functions, such as a workout area/patient room in the rehabilitative therapy service line. In the neonatal setting, the health system saved $3 million by creating rooms that may be private for one patient or used by several patients at the same time.
