How an IDS Improves Outcomes Using a Clinical Collaborative Structure

To transform the U.S. healthcare system, providers are in determined pursuit of the Triple Aim: improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita costs of care.1 MultiCare, an integrated delivery system (IDS) in the Pacific Northwest, is fully committed to excelling in all three areas of the Triple Aim and is establishing a structure and culture to accomplish that goal. This is no small challenge for an organization with more than 10,000 employees, 500,000 annual outpatient visits, and 1,188 beds.
