Research-Summit

Intermountain Healthcare is a learning organization, which, in a nutshell, means we’re constantly and continually improving, based on scientific evidence. We get that evidence from research conducted all over the world, even within our own organization.

That drive – to learn how to provide the highest quality care at sustainable costs – is the foundation of clinical research at Intermountain, and the theme behind the 13th Annual Intermountain Healthcare Research Summit, which convened in mid-April. More than 200 researchers and research support staff joined Raj Srivastava, MD, MPH, Assistant Vice President of Research, to discuss Intermountain’s vision for research: To conduct studies that will have a rapid impact on care delivery performance, focused on achieving the best medical result at the lowest necessary cost.
