Gregory P. Poulsen
Senior VP
Intermountain Health Care

Why Healthcare Costs Are Rising

Greg joined IHC in 1982. As a member of IHC’s management committee, he shares responsibility for the organization’s operational and strategic planning. He has direct responsibility for research and development, marketing, information technology, and e-business. IHC provides a network of 22 hospitals and related services in the Intermountain area. The company employs over 400 physicians, and manages a large health insurance organization.

Greg has served IHC in various roles, including developing the company’s insurance strategy, and its clinical and financial information technology systems. He developed the first integrated hospital cost definition and accounting system in the U.S. in 1983. Cost management and healthcare affordability continue to remain high on his list of priorities.

Greg will cover the rising cost of health care. He will explain how medical advances, life expectancy, and economic and social factors, impact healthcare costs.
