At Kaiser Permanente, new and shared ideas come together to offer a more personalized, high quality experience for your patients and an engaging, rewarding work environment for you.
Because innovation is key to improving and strengthening the practice, Kaiser Permanente has initiated a number of programs to promote human-centered care delivery for both patients and care providers. And like all good innovation, it doesn't stop there.

Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect
Kaiser Permanente embraces the tools and systems that make it easier for patients and caregivers to make the right health choices. The electronic tools being incorporated into our care practices set new standards for care delivery-putting us on the leading edge of the health industry.
The biggest and most exciting of these tools, Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect, is a $3.2 billion information technology system designed to expedite the flow of information between patients, physicians, key health specialists, and patient services. When fully implemented, the system will enable health care practitioners to access electronic health records, decision-support tools, and evidence-based protocols in real-time in the exam room-facilitating immediate and informed decisions.
The business, research, and administrative benefits of this powerful technology are equally far-reaching, allowing us to generate comprehensive and accurate research faster than ever imagined. The resulting data will allow us to assess and track the cost and value of our care, helping us reduce disparities and improve health outcomes for entire populations.
