Did you know Intermountain Healthcare’s mortality rates for patients who suffer a heart attack are among the lowest in the nation? Have you heard that through Intermountain’s Precision Genomics program, we can identify actionable gene mutations in more than 75 percent of patients with advanced-stage cancer and offer those patients additional treatment options?

As an organization, we celebrate these advancements in medicine, and dozens more, because of the lives that are improved and saved as the result of critical work that goes on behind the scenes through Intermountain Healthcare’s Clinical Programs.

Intermountain’s Clinical Programs bring people together to continually improve care

The programs are the mechanism by which our experts in medical science, operations, data analysis, and care delivery collaborate and advance clinical care from St. George, Utah, to Burley, Idaho.

Each program is led by a physician Medical Director and an Operations Director. They oversee the work of the Clinical Programs and lead the programs’ guidance councils with participation from each geographic region in the form of regional management teams. In each program, multidisciplinary development teams work together to review the medical literature, evaluate our own processes and data, and develop evidence-based best practices. Our caregivers then apply these standards, using judgment and flexibility, to tailor care to meet the unique circumstances of each patient. Notably, this approach leads to both demonstrably improved outcomes and more affordable healthcare. Why? Because when care is provided in the best possible way, there are fewer medical complications, patients recover more quickly and completely, and costs tend to be lower.
