AIM modules provide a tool for physicians seeking a quality-improvement program and a way to meet new ACGME competencies or the American Board of Internal Medicine’s Maintenance of Certification Program requirements.
AIM is a Web-based self-evaluation tool that guides the user through medical chart abstraction of de-identified data. The questions, based on rheumatology measures and guidelines, generate a report that enables physicians to:
- Reflect on practice performance data;
- Identify strengths and areas for improvement;
- Develop and implement improvement plans;
- Assess the chart re-measurement effects; and
- Report changes.
The ACR released its first AIM practice improvement module, “AIM: Rheumatoid Arthritis,” during the 2006 annual meeting.
