Clinical Programs and Services

We use a team approach to provide optimal care and achieve the best outcomes

Intermountain’s team approach to care—developed by our physicians and other clinicians over the last several decades—seeks to provide optimal care to each patient using treatments and techniques proven effective. Our Clinical Programs and Services are at the heart of these efforts. Physicians, nurses, and other caregivers collaborate to continually improve clinical work processes. These teams review the medical literature, review our own processes and data, and develop evidence-based best practices. Our caregivers then implement these standards, using judgment and flexibility to tailor care to meet the unique circumstances of each patient.

Notably, this approach leads to both demonstrably excellent outcomes and more affordable healthcare.

One example: We know that mental health can affect physical health. To address both, we include mental health services within our clinics and hospitals, and we work closely with behavioral health services in the community. Patients diagnosed with depression and treated through Intermountain Clinics using this team approach to care show a significant reduction in the number of both clinic and emergency room visits for all health concerns in the year following diagnosis, compared with patients diagnosed with depression and treated through clinics not using this integrated approach.

Intermountain’s Clinical Programs include:
Cardiovascular, Oncology, Women and Newborns, Intensive Medicine, Primary Care, Pediatric Specialties, Surgical Services, Behavioral Health, Neurosciences, and Musculoskeletal

Intermountain’s Clinical Services include:
Dialysis, Environmental, Food and Nutrition, Clinical Genetics Institute, Imaging, Integrated Care Management, Laboratory, Nursing, Pain, Patient and Provider Publications, Patient Flow, Patient Safety, Pharmacy, Rehabilitation, and Respiratory Care.
