Goals and Intended Results

Grounded in science-based improvement and innovation methods, this learning and action collaborative will catalyze unprecedented partnership and co-creation of innovation between institutions of higher education and internationally recognized subject matter experts in college student and young adult health, health system design innovation, and higher education transformation to:

  1. Accelerate the progress of colleges and universities on their transformative journey in pursuit of the Triple Aim, including building a robust Triple Aim infrastructure for measurement and improvement;
  2. Prototype innovative models in a higher education setting to achieve the Triple Aim
  3. Develop and test approaches to measuring the Triple Aim dimensions of campus-level health and wellbeing, students’ experience of care and services, and cost of producing health – in a way that stimulates improvement, reflects progress, and is balanced and practical.

Intended Results:  While two years may not be enough time to produce dramatic changes in all three dimensions of the Triple Aim for a whole population of students, partner colleges and universities should be able to successfully build a robust Triple Aim infrastructure for measurement and improvement, define and advance key projects within their portfolio to the level of measurable project results, and that some campuses will attain measurable progress on all three dimensions of the Triple Aim, at least for pilot populations of strategic importance.
