Intermountain Healthcare's 83 clinics become patient-centered medical homes

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare's 83 primary care clinics are now considered patient-centered medical homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

To qualify for the recognition, Intermountain Healthcare's medical group had to demonstrate consistent patient-centered care, including same-day access, team-based treatment and population health management.

Intermountain Medical Group adopted a medical home model and began establishing medical homes for older adults in Utah and the Intermountain West more than 15 years ago. The group expanded the model to all its primary care clinics in 2011.
