OAKLAND, Calif., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente has chosen Digitas, Advertising Age's 2008 Digital A-List direct marketing agency and BtoB Magazine's 2008 Top Agency, as its online creative and offline direct marketing agency.

Miller, vice president of database marketing services for Kaiser Permanente. "This agreement reflects our overall goal to align Kaiser Permanente's services with the needs of our customer segments by communicating a targeted message through media channels, both online and offline."
