Evidence-Based Practice and the Quadruple Aim

Healthcare organizations continually seek to optimize healthcare performance. For years, this approach was a three-pronged one known as the Triple Aim, with efforts focused on improved population health, enhanced patient experience, and lower healthcare costs.

More recently, this approach has evolved to a Quadruple Aim by including a focus on improving the work life of healthcare providers. Each of these measures are impacted by decisions made at the organizational level, and organizations have increasingly turned to EBP to inform and justify these decisions.

EBP and the Quadruple Aim

To Prepare:

· Read the articles by Sikka, Morath, & Leape (2015); Crabtree, Brennan, Davis, & Coyle (2016); and Kim et al. (2016) provided in the Resources.

· Reflect on how EBP might impact (or not impact) the Quadruple Aim in healthcare.

· Consider the impact that EBP may have on factors impacting these quadruple aim elements, such as preventable medical errors or healthcare delivery.

To Complete:

Write a brief analysis (no longer than 2 pages) of the connection between EBP and the Quadruple Aim.

Your analysis should address how EBP might (or might not) help reach the Quadruple Aim, including each of the four measures of:

· Patient experience

· Population health

· Costs

· Work life of healthcare providers


Module 1: Evidence Based Practice (EBP) and the Quadruple Aim There are two objectives for this module:  •    Evaluate healthcare organization for evidence based practices •    Analyze the relationship between evidence based practice and the Quadruple Aim in healthcare organizations. Keep these goals in mind as you complete your readings, discussion, and assignment this module.  Watch the video introduction to the course. Watch the video in the Module. Read as many of the learning resources as possible for the week.

Choose a professional healthcare organization and review their website. Explore the website to determine where and how EBP is evidence. Write your initial discussion post and post it no later than Wednesday, Day 3.  What should be included in your initial post?  1.    A description of the organization website that you reviewed.  2.    Where does EBP appear ( mission, philosophy, goals of the organization, or other locations). Don’t just list them-explain your choice 3.    Answer the question: Did the information you found on the website change your perception of the healthcare organization.  4.    Be very specific and provide examples. Use AT LEAST THREE credible resources to support your findings and ideas.

Once you have posted an initial post, come back to the discussion and review the posts made by your peers. Review the websites they shared. You will post two responses to peers on two different days.  (You will have three posts on three days in total for the week.)  What should be included in the responses:  1.    Offer additional examples of EBP  2.    Alternative views or interpretations to those shared by your peers.  3.    Be specific and use at least two credible resources to support your findings and ideas.   The discussion posts should be completed no later than Saturday, Day 6.  Responses will not be graded after day 6.   Be sure to review the grading rubric so that you know how you will be graded and can post accordingly
