Quadruple AIM

The Triple Aim was developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in October of 2007.  Building upon this, our office has now adopted the Quadruple Aim.
The Quadruple Aim framework was designed to help health care organizations:

  • Improve the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction);
  • Improve the health of populations; and
  • Reduce the per capita cost of health care
  • Improve provider satisfaction (professional wellness)

To contribute to UAMS’ success in reaching the Quadruple Aim; the Office of Interprofessional Education has developed a strategic goal framework that supports a horizontal organizational structure that bridges across UAMS’ six- health professions (colleges), clinical delivery system and our research enterprise. The interprofessional education strategic goals support the vision of the Quadruple Aim; to improve patient health care, to improve population health in Arkansas, to reduce cost of health care, and improve provider satisfaction in Arkansas.
