Kaiser Permanente Honored for Success in Diabetes and Heart Disease Prevention
Date:11/5/2008

ach day. They have harnessed the power of our electronic health record (KP HealthConnect(TM)) to enable our patients with diabetes and heart disease to live healthier lives. In reality, the real winners are those patients," said Benjamin K. Chu, MD, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan/Hospitals, Inc., in Southern California.

The California Department of Managed Health Care oversees health plans in California that provide health insurance to 21 million enrollees. The "Director's Right Care Initiative Award" is a part of the DMHC's larger, three-year Right Care Initiative, which examines managed care and the quality of service to patients in California. This initiative focuses on three key areas -- heart disease, diabetes and hospital-acquired infections -- where there is clear science for improving patient care while constraining costs through prevention of catastrophic patient events.
