Measurable Outcomes

Whole Person Senior Care Dramatically Reduces ER & Hospital Visits

Robert and Wife

Homespire, an Intermountain Healthcare company, is a partnership between Intermountain and Minnesota-based Lifespark to bring their proprietary Life Care model with a whole person senior care approach to Utah.

Designed as a community-based population health management platform for long-term performance improvement, the Life Care model is transforming the industry with unparalleled results – reducing client ER visits by 47.8% and hospitalizations by 56.8% (2017 data)! That translates into significantly lower long-term costs for clients and the system. Plus, Lifespark leads the industry in client and employee satisfaction.

According to Lifespark CEO & Founder Joel Theisen who also serves as Homespire’s President & CEO, “lifespark from its inception was built to break the cycle of readmissions so many seniors face.” It’s why our proprietary Whole Person Senior Care model includes comprehensive outcomes tracking of not only hospitalization, but also quality of life, the new driver of population health management.

Homespire Is Your Forward-Thinking Partner

We believe in partnerships for life. Our long-term success means a win-win-win opportunity for seniors and their families, healthcare providers and your organization. The world of senior care is advancing and changing – it’s time to take a more enlightened, innovative approach – one you can drive throughout your organization to create real change for the better and stay ahead of the curve for success!

And now Lifespark, through a partnership with Intermountain Healthcare, is bringing that model to Utah via Homespire.
