Date:5/8/2009

first quarter of 2009. A key part of KFHP/H's information technology platform and tools, KP HealthConnect provides members with valuable information about their health and medical care. All members can access their personal health records online securely and communicate with their physicians and clinicians through My Health Manager on kp.org. Members send an average of 600,000 secure messages each month to Kaiser Permanente physicians, nurses, and other clinicians through KP HealthConnect. In the first three months of the year, members also refilled more than 1.5 million prescriptions through kp.org.

As not-for-profit organizations, KFHP/H also use their resources to support a wide range of community benefit programs, which provide care for low-income individuals and support community-based health partnerships, research, training, and community health organizations. In the first quarter of 2009, KFHP/H continued to support a broad and growing range of programs to serve the needs of its communities, approving more than 400 grants and donations. In 2008, KFHP/H provided nearly $1.2 billion to support community benefit programs and services. "As the recession continues to create hardships for those who are economically vulnerable, we are working to make our community benefit efforts even more robust and meaningful," said Halvorson.
