Post a response to the discussion question.

The figure of a triangle, referred to as the “Iron Triangle”, is often used to depict the dilemma facing our health care system. The three points are labeled cost, quality, and access. Briefly describe what you think is meant by this depiction. 

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has modified the triangle based upon changes within the industry and relabeled the key points to more closely reflect the overall strategic goals necessary to sustain an effective healthcare model and refers to the revised model as “Triple Aim”.  Do you agree with this revised model?  Why or why not?
