Patients in the Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital service area with late-stage chronic illness can access the same resources and support available to big city residents thanks to the next major expansion at the local hospital. Thanks to Sutter Health’s Advanced Illness Management (AIM)® program, The expansion extends access to eligible Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital and Sutter Medical Group-Sutter Independent Physicians patients in portions of El Dorado and Placer counties. Dr. James McGregor, M.D. medical director for Sutter Care at Home explains what that means to local residents.
Dr. McGregor explains the difference AIM has made in the lives of patients.
The AIM program provides nurse-led care management, palliative care, and advanced care planning for patients with late-stage chronic illness. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) awarded Sutter Health a three-year, $13 million Health Care Innovation Award to support the expansion of AIM throughout Northern California.
