Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Leads the Nation in Breast Cancer Screening

ans and thousands of clinical support staff in Hawaii. When a member comes in for a visit, every clinical professional from the nurses to the physicians - even those in dermatology, ophthalmology, or any other specialty - can remind the patient that she is due for a mammogram.

Kaiser Permanente continues to proactively reach out to members who miss their mammograms with follow-up letters, reminders and personal phone calls. A recent Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research study published in the August 2009 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that a reminder program aimed at screening for breast cancer boosted mammography rates by more than 17 percent.

To further increase access to comprehensive care, Kaiser Permanente introduced its Mobile Health Vehicle on the Big Island this summer. It is estimated that the convenience of the vehicle will allow for an additional 4,400 mammography screenings per year.

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has provided total health to the people of Hawaii for more than 50 years. Today it has the largest medical group with over 410 physicians supported by 4,400 nurses and support staff. Care for members is focused on their total health guided by our personal physicians, specialists, and team of caregivers. Our expert care and medical teams are supported by industry-leading technology advances and tools for health promotion, disease prevention, state-of-the-art care delivery, and world-class chronic disease management.
