  10. 10. The  Innova$on  Framework  is  a  tool  for  classifying  innovaCon  efforts  throughout  the  Military  Health  System.    The  goal  is  a  balanced  porfolio  of  innovaCons  across  the  MHS  that  is  aligned  with  the  Quadruple  Aim  and    spans  a  range  of  different  types  of  innovaCon.  Quadruple  Aim  Readiness:    Ensuring  that  the  total  military  force  is  medically  ready  to  deploy  and  to  deliver  health  care  anyCme,  anywhere  in  support  of  the  full  range  of  military  operaCons,  including  humanitarian  missions.  Experience  of  Care:    Providing  a  care  experience  that  is  paCent  and  family  centered,  compassionate,  convenient,  equitable,  safe  and  of  the  highest  quality.  Popula$on  Health:    Reducing  the  generators  of  ill  health  by  encouraging  healthy  behaviors  and  decreasing  the  likelihood  of  illness  through  focused  prevenCon  and  the  development  of  increased  resilience.  Per  Capita  Cost:    CreaCng  value  by  focusing  on  quality,  eliminaCng  waste  and  reducing  unwarranted  variaCon;  considering  the  total  cost  of  care  over  Cme,  not  just  the  cost  of  an  individual  health  care  acCvity.  Types  of  Innova$on  Process  Improvement:    Improving  the  efficiency  and/or  effecCveness  of  processes  through  incremental,  localized  changes.    Leading  Prac$ce:    AdopCng  proven  soluCons  from  within  and  outside  of  MHS  that  update  and/or  expand  exisCng  work  streams  or  services.    Transforma$ve  Innova$on:    New  or  fundamentally  redesigned  work  streams  or  services  that  deliver  expanded  value  proposiCons.    Disrup$ve  Innova$on:    Ground-­‐breaking  changes  that  disrupt  current  behavior,  render  exisCng  approaches  and  delivery  mechanisms  obsolete  and  that  change  the  value  proposiCon.    Innova$on  Framework  10
