  • 1st AIM form developed
  • One-stop shop
  • Integrates with other forms

The CORE AIM form was the first AIM form developed by the Tri-Service Workflow team, along with its associated workflow. Born out of the frustration of trying to document in AHLTA, the proliferation of different documentation templates, and the multitude of policies and guidelines for clinical documentation, the CORE was created to be a “one-stop shop” where both providers and the clinical support staff could complete the vast majority of their documentation. The CORE form consolidates and standardizes documentation requirements from many disparate sources (inspection agencies, DoD policies, generally accepted clinical guidelines, etc.), and serves as the basis for many of our other forms, like the various Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) AIM forms. The CORE works seamlessly with these other forms, allowing staff to use the form that works best for a particular visit without disrupting the form workflow.
