The Quadruple Aim
Quadruple Aim

A Conceptual Framework

Improving the U.S. health care system requires four aims: improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, reducing per capita costs and improving care team well-being. HITEQ Center resources seek to provide content and direction aligned with the goals of the Quadruple Aim

Overview

Through the data validation process, valuable information is gained that can then be used to improve performance around patient care or quality of care metrics.  Improving quality performance may take the form of improving data collection processes, better identifying patients who need additional interventions, or decreasing missed opportunities to provide patients appropriate interventions, among other possibilities. This section includes guidance on leveraging Health IT to improve quality performance including change packages for recommended approaches related to various quality of care measures.

PrEP Process Map Example

HITEQ Center, September 2023

This resource is an example of a Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Process MapA process map is a picture of how a health center workflow moves from the start point to the end point. As you review the process map, make note of the design elements, such as use of colors, shapes, and icons, and the level of detail included in the map. You can download the process map in the Documents to Download section below.

This process map is included in the HITEQ Team Toolkit: PrEP Process Mapping. This toolkit is designed to support team-based learning, reflection, and action on the use of process mapping as a tool to document clinical and EHR workflows for starting a patient on PrEP. Health center teams can follow the steps outlined in the toolkit to develop a process map of an existing or planned PrEP service workflow and to identify opportunities to streamline and improve that workflow.

 

View this 5-minute video for an introduction to PrEP Process Mapping. The video provides a definition of process mapping, outlines the benefits of the map development process and the process maps themselves, and walks through an example process map.

After reviewing the process map and the video, consider these questions:

  1. How do you think having a PrEP process map could help your clinic (or team)?
  2. What do you think are the most helpful aspects of the example process map?
  3. How can a process map like this assist with the integration of care processes and EHR workflow?

You can download a blank process map template to use for your health center's PrEP workflow in the Documents to Download section below. The PrEP Process Map: Level of Detail Worksheet can help your team identify the details that would be most helpful to include in your process map.
