AIM Network Governance
AIM Network Board
The AIM Network Board was formed in December 2010. Board members were selected and appointed based on applicants and recommendations. The selection process was guided by composition priorities aimed at achieving a balance of primary care and specialty representation, geographic distribution, as well as a balance of independent and employed physicians.
AIM Network Committees
The AIM Network Board has launched four committees.
Clinical Performance Committee
The Clinical Performance Committee’s primary responsibilities are to improve the coordination and integration of clinical care, improve the health, quality of and access to health care for the patients and populations it serves, improve cost effectiveness, and improve the patient experience. In addition, it will work closely with the Network Operations and Development Committee to ensure the appropriate infrastructure is in place to support the clinical performance reporting and performance improvement focus, as well as with the Finance and Payer Contracting Committee to demonstrate value. The Clinical Performance Committee offers AIMN physicians and Allina Health a unique opportunity to collectively share information and clinical knowledge, and differentiate the care we provide in the communities we collectively serve.
Network Operations and Development Committee
The Network Operations and Development Committee assists the Network in developing and implementing policies, practices and infrastructure that support the ongoing development and operations of the AIM Network. This includes member recruitment as well as the development and implementation of the AIM Network member communications strategy and plan. This committee will also oversee the development and implementation of the AIM Network information technology strategy and plan. The initial focus of the IT plan will be the implementation of a web-based patient registry tool that can integrate patient care data from a range of sources in order to support care coordination across AIM Network practices.
Governance and Nominating Committee
The Governance and Nominating Committee develops and recommends policies and guidelines related to corporate governance, Board, and Committee member selection. This includes evaluating and recommending candidates for Board and Committee positions, as well as developing policies such as the Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy specific to AIM Network Governance members.
Finance and Payer Contracting Committee
The Finance and Payer Contracting Committee’s primary responsibilities are to secure AIM Network contracts with payers and to develop a performance payment model that aligns participant incentives in a way that creates value for AIMN members and achieves triple aim goals for patients. This committee will work closely with the Clinical Performance Committee to ensure performance measures support payer contracts and payment model. The Finance and Payer Contracting Committee offers AIM physicians and Allina Health the opportunity to collaboratively develop a payment model that shares rewards and responsibilities.
