In his piece, “The Triple Aim Has Been Hijacked By Powerful Political Forces,” Paul Levy suggests that the Triple Aim is losing ground to political and market forces because its fiercest advocates have depended too much on its ideology.  Levy argues that the real battle for the Triple Aim is about power, money, customer choice, and cost.  For example, using the “population health” rubric of the ACO, Levy argues that hospitals seek to consolidate market power by acquiring other facilities and practices in a geographic area.  What do you think?
