"Front-line health care workers will be the lynchpin in transforming health care in this country," said John Sweeney, president of the AFL-CIO, a voluntary federation of 56 national and international unions that represent 11 million workers. "Kaiser Permanente's success in using technology has underscored that the integration and optimization of a health IT system are dependent on people. Both effective computer systems and skilled clinicians are needed to truly change the way care is delivered and achieve quality outcomes."

The pilot program consists of integrated nursing and pharmacy teams that work collaboratively with heart disease patients and their doctors. The team is connected by technology tools that help them deliver care proven to improve health outcomes. Activities such as lifestyle modification, medication management, patient education, laboratory results monitoring, and management of adverse events are all coordinated through the program, which helps guide the patient through both short- and long-term care decisions.

The program achieved the following results:

  • Patients have an 88 percent reduced risk of dying of a cardiac-related cause when enrolled within 90 days of a heart attack, compared to those not in the program;
  • The number of patients meeting their cholesterol goal went from 26 percent to 73 percent and;
  • The number of patients screened for cholesterol went from 55 percent to 97 percent.

Research indicates that fewer than 20 percent of coronary artery disease patients are expected to survive 10 years after their first heart attack. The coordinated, evidence-based care, enabled by KP HealthConnect and an electronic care registry, increased that survival rate dramatically. It is estimated that more than 135 deaths and 260 costly emergency interventions were prevented an
