Health care expenditures, patient satisfaction and timely access to care will remain problematic if dramatic changes in health care delivery models are not developed and implemented. To combat this challenge a Triple Aim approach is essential. Innovation in payment and health care delivery models is required. Using the Donabedian Framework: structure, process, and outcome, this article describes a nurse-led employee-centered care model designed to: improve the consumers’ health care experience; improve health of an employee population; and increase access to care while reducing health care costs for employees, age 18 and older, of a self-insured corporation.
