Intermountain Healthcare recently announced a joint venture with home healthcare company Lifespark to provide seniors with nonclinical support services.

Under the partnership, case managers will provide 24/7 assistance to seniors in their homes for an array of needs, including financial planning and helping patients find their purpose and passion. The case managers are registered nurses and can address clinical concerns.

The system hopes the partnership will reduce unnecessary emergency room and hospital visits by addressing the social aspects of daily life for elderly patients that impact their health and well-being. “It’s designed to keep patients living a full, healthy life while reducing unnecessary costs,” said Nikolas Mark, venture director at Intermountain.

Intermountain expects to see an influx of elderly patients in the next 25 years. The Lifespark partnership offers a way for the system to meet the rising demand, according to the news release.
