Organisational Goals 

Triple Aim

The Triple Aim is our core business. The objectives of the Triple Aim encourage us to take an integrated approach to align improvement across the whole system.

The three Triple Aim organisational goals of the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District are:

  • Improving population health (inequalities and localities)
  • Enhancing the patient experience (clinical quality, access and safety)
  • Living within our means (service and financial performance).

It should be noted that no one goal is more important than another and all three must be worked on simultaneously.

These are all objectives of health and provide the basis for our prioritisation process, ensuring Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District delivers safe and high quality services, which provide value for money and the best health outcomes for the population.
