Shared Accountability is Intermountain Healthcare's approach to providing better care, better health, and better cost management in a changing healthcare environment. It involves everyone in improving care: patients, employers, healthcare organizations, physicians, and the community.
Shared Accountability will help us:
- Deliver the right care — or treatments that have proven to be effective — in the right setting at the right time.
- Avoid over-treatment, under-treatment, and misuse of resources.
- Achieve better health for those we serve by promoting prevention and wellness and helping patients become more engaged in their health.
- Manage costs by removing incentives that contribute to ineffective care, encouraging wellness and prevention, and improving efficiency.
