Aultman Inpatient Medicine
AIM coverage options for physicians

For Primary Care and Specialty Physicians

In today's heath care world, patients requiring hospital admission are sicker and require a more intensive level of care than inpatients in the past. For primary care physicians juggling a demanding office practice, it can be challenging to respond to the rapidly changing needs of hospitalized patients. That's where Aultman Inpatient Medicine (AIM) comes in. Through an agreement with AIM, you gain the peace of mind of physician partners caring for your hospitalized patients around the clock, keeping you apprised of the changes in condition, and then coordinating the transition of care back to you after discharge.

Aultman Inpatient Medicine (AIM) hospitalists are board certified or board eligible internal medicine physicians who provide 24/7 coverage to patients admitted to Aultman Hospital. Our team also works with specialists to admit patients. We have a dedicated AIM consult team to assist various specialties in the care of their patients.

AIM provides direct care to approximately 100 patients a day, covering for more than 140 physicians in Stark and surrounding counties at Aultman Hospital. To see a list of our current PCPs, please click here.

AIM is dedicated to providing high-quality care to patients. We focus on many quality initiatives, including:

  • Transitions of care
  • Hospital readmissions
  • Core measures: heart failure, pneumonia, vaccination

AIM Transition of Care Information

Our process for transition of care includes:

  • History and physical report completed at the time of admission and transmitted to PCP's office next business day.
  • High-risk screening (following Society of Hospitalist Medicine guidelines) completed by rounding coordinator upon discharge and communicated to PCP.
  • Discharge summary completed within 24 hours of discharge and transmitted to PCP's office the next business day.
  • Follow-up appointment with PCP scheduled for 3-5 days following discharge for all home-going patients.
  • Follow-up phone call completed within 72 hours of discharge for all home-going patients identified as high risk for readmission.
  • Regular discussions and visits with our partnering PCP offices to continually improve quality, performance, and patient and physician satisfaction.
