TEAM - ACIStrategies, 12 Feb 2015 [cached]
Brad is co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of ACIStrategies. With more than 35 years of experience practicing internal medicine, palliative care and hospice, and as a healthcare innovator with a national reputation, he has a career-long commitment to improving clinical and economic outcomes by promoting dignity, choice and responsibility. He was instrumental in creating the first Advanced Illness Management (AIM) program in the US with a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in 1999, shepherded its growth over a decade at Sutter Health, and spearheaded the proposal that earned AIM a $13 million award in 2010 from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation. Brad drove AIM's growth and development toward a national model now adopted by the American Hospital Association and many US health systems and championed by the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC), where he is a founding Board member. For over 10 years Brad has focused on delivery system redesign, specializing in outcome and financial metrics and analytics, physician and staff training, and value-driven cost reduction in advanced illness. A graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine, he was named to the 2013 HealthLeaders' Media list of Top 20 national difference-makers and was profiled in Atlantic Monthly. He has been named Physician of the Year by the California Association of Health Services at Home. Brad speaks internationally on clinical, economic and spiritual issues in advanced illness.

The Most Important Conversation You'll Ever Have, 14 Oct 2015 [cached]
Brad Stuart, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for Sutter Care at Home, Sutter Health's home health care affiliate, and a national leader in end-of-life care, says people resist completing an advance health care directive for many reasons.

That's why it's important to have an integrated program that involves hospitals, medical groups, and home- and community-based services, especially for patients with late-stage chronic illness, says Brad Stuart, MD, CMO at Sutter Care at Home, which is part of the 24 hospitals and more than 5,000 physicians affiliated with the Sutter Health system based in Sacramento, Calif.
Sutter has included care management and palliative services under the umbrella of the Advanced Illness Management program that Stuart and his team created for what he terms a "vulnerable and growing population. While palliative care is often focused on the "relief of symptoms and suffering," Stuart says, "our focus is much more comprehensive and positive."
Multidisciplinary teams that include physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, and nutritionists are part of Sutter's palliative care program. Various elements focus on the specific needsâ€"and wantsâ€"of patients. While physicians often outline the medication needs for patients, the AIM program always considers "what does the patient want? Stuart says. It's the "little things" that matter that are too often lost in traditional medical care, he adds.
"We are taking more seriously those little things that a patient wants or needs," Stuart says.
The AIM program has had substantial impact, Stuart says. In a two-year review of 185 patients in the program, those who lived at least 30 days had 68% fewer hospitalizations than similar patients who were not in AIM. Those who lived 90 days had 63% fewer hospitalizations, according to Stuart.
There were also significant cost savings, he says: The average savings per patient was more than $2,000 per month. Of all patients who entered the program, about two-thirds went to hospice with longer lengths of stay in hospice than those who had not been enrolled in AIM.
Patients welcome the program, Stuart says.
