Intermountain Health Care (IHC) of Salt Lake City has helped improve the health of many of its chronically ill patients through a program that places care managers in physicians' offices. About four years ago, when IHC began researching ways of extending its reach and improving care for the chronically ill, it assigned two home health employees to physicians' offices and told them to help doctors manage the patients. IHC is a nonprofit charitable health care organization made up of 21 hospitals, an insurance company, clinics, and about 400 physicians' practices. It serves about 500,000 clients under its insurance plan.
