Kaiser Permanente Wins National Award for Technology-Supported Patient Care and Efficiency
Date:7/15/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente today received the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems Award in recognition of the organization's excellence and outstanding achievement in applied medical informatics. The award is based on successful implementation of a technology system to improve patient care, support a more effective medical practice and to improve work flow and contain health costs. Winners were honored today at the 18th annual Physician Computer Connection Symposium, as well as in Modern Healthcare/Modern Physician magazines.

"Kaiser Permanente has long embraced innovation and information technology. While we believe that there is a great deal more potential where technology is concerned, it is an honor to be recognized for the work within our organization," said John Mattison, MD, assistant medical director and chief medical information officer for Kaiser Permanente in Southern California. "We have already discovered better treatments and care practices and implemented them across the program within minutes, compared with months or years in the paper world of the past."

The Kaiser Permanente clinical programs recognized include:

  • Total joint replacement registry. Kaiser Permanente has the nation's largest and fastest-growing population-based total joint replacement registry, with data on more than 75,000 joint replacement surgeries - making it possible to conduct, evaluate, and synthesize research into actionable clinical-care guidelines.
  • Breast cancer screening. In 2008, Kaiser Permanente's Southern California region ranked #1 nationally in breast cancer screening rates (Source: Quality Compass 2008, National Committee for Quality Assurance). This achievement resulted from the availability of up-to-date clinical information, tied to an electronic scheduling system,
