Disrupt Podcast #20: Joel Theisen,CEO of Lifesprk

The 20th episode of our podcast, Disrupt, is now available!

If you haven’t yet heard of Minnesota-based Lifesprk, you likely will very soon.

Led by CEO Joel Theisen, Lifesprk provides a range of services in the home — including home-based primary care — to help seniors achieve their health and wellness goals. The model has been so successful, the company teamed up with Utah’s Intermountain Healthcare in 2018 for the launch of their Homespire joint venture, which Theisen also oversees.


Going after value-based care arrangements is Lifesprk’s bread and butter, according to Theisen. Additionally, when it comes to emerging Medicare Advantage (MA) opportunities for non-medical in-home services and supports targeting chronic care management, Lifesprk is “all in,” he said.

Listen to this episode of Disrupt to learn:

  • Why Intermountain decided to team up with Lifesprk, a company several hundred miles away
  • How Lifesprk is positioning itself to land value-based care arrangements and MA contracts
  • Why isolation can be fatal for home care providers
  • … And much more!
