Interim CEO, Castell, and vice president of strategy, Intermountain Healthcare
As vice president of strategy, Dirks has advanced Intermountain Healthcare’s shift to value-based care. In 2018, the health system launched its Reimagined Primary Care model, which transitioned primary-care physicians into value-based arrangements, realigned incentives and redesigned the way providers care for their patients. Intermountain credits the model with measurably contributing to the Quadruple Aim across the system: enhanced patient experience, improved population health, lower costs and improved provider experience. Castell, Intermountain’s population health organization, relies on the new primary-care approach to help providers and payers accelerate the transition from volume to value via analytics, network management and digital tools.
