To achieve the Triple Aim, the leaders of a new care model will first want to understand the health needs of its population, then analyse the quality, equity and efficiency of the care that is currently being provided, before identifying opportunities for improvement. Some early questions for these leaders to ask themselves are therefore:
What data will we need to collect, collate, disseminate and publish?
How will we obtain and use these data legally, securely and ethically?
How will we use data to understand the needs and experiences of our population, to target preventive care and other initiatives most efficiently, and to monitor improvements in the Triple Aim?
