Wellfleet is proud to be the exclusive corporate sponsor of a groundbreaking collaborative designed to increase college student health and well-being by putting the Triple Aim – the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s nationally-recognized framework for optimizing health system performance and population health outcomes – within reach of college administrators.
As the sponsor of the collaborative effort to pursue the Triple Aim in the higher education setting, Wellfleet is working with New York University (NYU) and its partners on a multi-year mission to create strategies and best practices that colleges and universities can use to implement the Triple Aim approach. NYU’s partners are the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), the Network for Improvement and Innovation in College Health, and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).
The Triple Aim – increasing patient satisfaction, reducing the cost of care, and improving the health of populations – is embraced by many health care organizations. But there’s never been an effort to implement it on a widespread scale among the college health population – until now.
“Wellfleet is proud to support NYU’s collaborative to address the complex and specific needs of college student health on such a large scale,” said Drew DiGiorgio, President & CEO.
“The Triple Aim is a key pillar of Wellfleet’s corporate philosophy as a health insurance company. The healthcare and health insurance systems are so complex – we want to help empower college and university administrators to improve population health, and, we want to empower students to become better consumers of healthcare,” said DiGiorgio.
The collaborative is composed of eight universities across the country:
- New York University
- Case Western Reserve University
- Cornell University
- Rochester Institute of Technology
- Stanford University
- Texas A & M University
- University at Albany (SUNY Albany)
- University of California, Los Angeles
