Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year-End 2007 Financial Results
Date:2/14/2008

ded its Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) program to 28 sites, and funded the establishment of national quality centers for public hospitals and community health centers.

Kaiser Permanente's electronic health record project, KP HealthConnect(TM), is producing benefits toward improving quality, service, and patient safety. In April 2008, the organization will complete its ambulatory electronic health record implementation, making outpatient medical records available for all of its approximately 8.7 million members. In addition, all members can now securely access their personal health records and communicate with their physicians through kp.org. Members currently visit the kp.org site over one million times per month to manage their health online. A recent study of Kaiser Permanente's experience was published in the American Journal of Managed Care and showed that patients with online access to a personal health record are choosing to use secure e-mail. The study illustrates how Web-based options are playing a larger role in doctor-patient interaction and are contributing to the total health and service satisfaction of Kaiser Permanente's members. In addition, with KP HealthConnect in place, the organization was able to ensure continuity of care for members affected by the recent Southern California wildfires even as members and staff were redirected to alternate medical centers.
