What is Population Health?

Population Health is our approach for improving people’s health — as well as their healthcare — at the lowest sustainable costs in the changing healthcare environment.


  1. Deliver the best health for those we serve.
  2. Deliver the best care for patients.
  3. Deliver affordable and sustainable costs.


Dozens of teams across Intermountain are using three key strategies to help us reach those goals:

  1. Redesigning care through developing and consistently using best practices that are based on the best available evidence.
  2. Engaging patients in their health and care choices.
  3. Aligning financial incentives for everyone who has a stake in healthcare.
