Intermountain is recognized as a model health system through pioneering research efforts
Humanizing Critical Care. Intermountain research concluded that eliminating even minimal hospital visitation restrictions leads to improved family, patient, and nurse satisfaction without representing a safety risk. The studies suggested patients do better medically when their families are free to accompany them during their ICU stay.
Cardiac Care. Several studies led by the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute identified a range of factors that contribute to heart attacks and other cardiac events.
Safe Scans. Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute researchers found that clinically indicated MRI tests are safe and do not need to be withheld in patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices.
Integrated Care. A 10-year study conducted by Intermountain shows delivering integrated mental and physical healthcare in team-based primary care settings results in better clinical outcomes for patients, lower rates of healthcare utilization, and lower costs.
