Kaiser Permanente CEO Calls for 'Connected' Health Care
Date:12/8/2008

WASHINGTON, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Halvorson delivered an opening keynote address today at the World Healthcare Innovation and Technology conference in Washington, D.C. In "Changing the Shape of Healthcare: Groundbreaking Innovations and their Impact on Healthcare Delivery," Mr. Halvorson set forth a vision for a health care system where data and connectivity enable patient-centered care. This new model will make it easy for caregivers to deliver the best, evidence-based care to every individual, keep people healthy, and best manage serious illnesses and chronic conditions.

"Health care has not been willing to use technology, and as a result the current system does not provide critical linkages between physicians, hospitals, doctors and patients, or between caregivers and the scientific community," said Halvorson. "Goal number one of health care reform should be to have a health care infrastructure that contains all of the data about all of the patients, all of the time. That functionality is needed to fuel medical advances. Fully accountable data about care can transform the way that it is delivered and improve not only the health of individuals, but of entire populations."

A health care system that builds a continuous loop of information around the patient should include electronic health data available to all physicians treating a patient, as well as to the individual patient. This will speed diagnosis and delivery of care. Information retrieval that took days, will take minutes. Additional information about the most current science, treatment protocols, and prevention should be pushed to everyone involved in a patient's care, providing proven, actionable steps to improve health. In addition to enhancing the quality of health care, implementing electronic medical records and other computerized tools will improve efficiency and are estimate
