Chief Medical Officer,
Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC)

Dr. Brad Stuart, a graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine, has been a general internist for 40 years. He was a hospice and palliative medicine specialist for 20 years as Senior Medical Director at Sutter Care at Home, providing home-based services to a large integrated health system in Northern California with 24 hospitals and over 5000 physicians. In 2007 he was voted “Physician of the Year” by the California Association for Health Services at Home.

While at Sutter, Brad developed the initial concepts for Advanced Illness Management (AIM®), a system of coordinated care for seriously ill seniors linking hospital, physician practices and patients’ homes. AIM won a $13 million Health Care Innovation Award in 2013 from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI). AIM significantly increased quality of care and reduced its cost. For this work, Brad was named one of the Top 20 Difference Makers in American healthcare by HealthLeaders magazine in 2013 and was profiled in The Atlantic that same year.

Brad is now Chief Medical Officer for the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) in Washington, DC, where he helps health systems, health plans and other organizations design and implement integrated systems of care for people with advanced illness. He lives in Sonoma County, California.
