Summary
Intermountain Health is developing innovative pay models for sustainable care system. The healthcare is built around acute care, focusing on end-of-life care, with limited reimbursement for prevention and wellness. Intermountain aims to change the transactional nature of healthcare, proposing a prepaid model for faster access to services and healthier lives. The prepaid approach allows the adoption of new technologies and care delivery methods. It's working to build care networks with full financial accountability and capitation arrangements. The focus is reducing costs, creating value amid increasing demand and clinician shortages, using models that reduce the need of seeing a provider. The prepaid model supports value-based transitions, allowing efficient care and new treatment methods.
