About AIM Network

Leaf with a water drop image of the world.

The AIM Network operates as a clinically integrated network of physicians who work closely together with Allina Health to improve health care quality and efficiency so as to benefit patients and purchasers of health care.

It also provides an infrastructure and tools to promote care coordination, evidenced based protocols and performance measurement to enable participating physicians to improve the quality and cost of the care they provide. Clinical integration will be the platform by which physicians and Allina can most effectively meet the requirements of health care reform.

Our vision and scope

The Allina Integrated Medical Network aligns independent physicians and Allina to deliver market-leading quality and efficiency in patient care.

  • Patients have multiple access points to a coordinated integrated delivery system that achieves the best outcomes and patient experience at the most affordable cost
  • Physicians assume a leadership role in partnership with Allina Health
  • Value created for payers is shared with participating providers
  • The Network supports the achievement of better integration across the care continuum through information technology, access to value-based contracts, and administrative support services
