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.
