President and CEO,
Intermountain’s effort to reimagine primary care, which started in 2018, grew in 2019 and moved further toward value-based arrangements. Among other things, the effort led to a 10% decline in ED visits and a 30% drop in inpatient admissions. Intermountain in 2019 also announced a five-year study aiming to find links between genetics and disease. And while New York City was in the thick of dealing with COVID-19 cases, Intermountain sent teams of clinicians to the East Coast to aid hospitals.
