Why Personalized Primary Care Works

Intermountain Healthcare is achieving the Triple Aim through team-based care, mental health integration, and clinician and institutional leadership at all levels.

Health care providers are under tremendous pressure to achieve the Triple Aim of better health for designated populations, better care experiences for patients and reduced cost of care. It comes at a time of enormous transition in health care, in which successful models are hard to find and refine.

The lessons we've already learned are informing our expanding rollout of the model and enhancing the potential for broader scaling.
