Alluceo, a new Intermountain Healthcare company, offers proven, team-based mental health integration services and technology. Launched in March 2018, Alluceo aims to normalize mental health services and simplify the process for connecting people with a team of skilled caregivers. 

Accessible Team-Based Care

Alluceo's services and technology are based on a program called Mental Health Integration (MHI) built by Intermountain primary care clinicians and leaders. The MHI program prioritizes physical and mental health equally, integrating mental and behavioral health services as a routine part of primary medical care. The program also leverages a team-based care model designed to engage a patient’s full care team: the patient and their family, doctor, mental health providers, and care managers. 
Alluceo’s digital platform makes the science of mental health integration accessible and powers team-based care protocols. The technology enables a patient’s full care team to communicate remotely and seamlessly, assess risk and complexity, and deliver high quality connected care. Applying technology in this way opens new possibilities for mental and behavioral health care delivery as well as prevention and management of chronic conditions.

A Proven Approach

Alluceo’s team-based approach stands out because it is backed by evidence, proven to reduce costs and improve care for patients. Reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Intermountain’s Mental Health Integration program—the framework for Alluceo—created tangible operational and clinical efficiencies:
  • The team-based care model had higher rates of active depression screening—46.1 vs. 24.1 percent
  • A lower rate of emergency room visits—a 23 percent reduction 
  • A lower rate of hospital admissions—a 10.6 percent reduction 
  • Lower cost of care to communities—a savings of 3.3 percent 
  • Better patient care through improved care management — primary care physician encounters reduced by 7 percent, with more patients receiving focused care
