"The number of categories in which KP is rated number one is a tribute to the clinical excellence of our physicians, nurses and staff and our advanced electronic medical record system. These outstanding results explain why our members have a 30 percent lower chance of dying from heart disease and why our patients with asthma are able to live a healthier life."

Gregory A. Adams, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan/Hospitals, Inc., in Northern California, said: "These high marks are a tribute to Kaiser Permanente's physicians, nurses and staff members for the quality care they provide to our patients. We're particularly proud of the fact that our efforts are having such a positive, life-changing impact for so many of our members. Kaiser Permanente is recognized as the health care leader in prevention and quality care, and this type of recognition clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to enhancing the health and well-being of our patients and the communities we serve."

This year's Health Care Quality Report Card from the OPA rated nine health plans in California on the quality of care enrollees receive, based on their record of health services provided to members, and in some cases, reviews of members' medical charts.
