Together our companies are working to achieve the three expectations set forth by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in its Triple Aim:
(1) improve the patient experience of care, including quality and satisfaction;
(2) improve the health of populations; and
(3) reduce the cost of healthcare.
We believe by delivering the right clinician at the right time and in the most appropriate setting, we can eliminate unplanned readmissions to the hospital, help avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency department, deliver on-demand care and much more. No company has the scale and scope of Envision Healthcare.
