Pediatricians are facing pressure to account for the quality and cost of care they provide to their patients. This is especially true for physicians treating chronically ill children, whose increasingly complex care is contributing to rising medical costs. The author highlights six ways health providers can help transform the care they provide to children and their families. The goal is to achieve the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim Framework: reduce health care costs, improve patients’ experiences of care, and improve the health of populations.
