Rhode Island AIM
Alliance on Innovation of Maternal Health
Rhode Island is proud to be an AIM state. Hospitals throughout Rhode Island are committed to doing their part in eliminating preventable maternal morbidity and mortality through the use of AIM patient care bundles. AIM focuses on inpatient care, such as care during Labor and Delivery and Postpartum. Standardized care models and enhanced teamwork provide the foundation for better outcomes for women and communities.
