More Americans Aware of Digital Health Options; Use of Health IT Increases
Date:6/12/2008

te, the move extends the functionality of its already successful My Health Manager tool currently used by its employees and members by enabling other health data to be imported into their personal health record.

Kaiser Permanente not only makes the tools available, but provides the outreach and education needed to encourage its members to fully utilize these cutting-edge services. New online tools, such as single visit activation and a revamped welcome page at kp.org have made patient access to online health tools both easy and secure. The results of these and other efforts are already evident.

-- More than 2.2 million Kaiser Permanente members now have access to

secure health information management features, an 11.9 percent increase

between Q4 2007 to Q1 2008.

-- Using My Health Manager, Kaiser Permanente members sent to more than

1.3 million emails to doctors and provides, viewed more than 3.8

million lab test results online, and submitted nearly 800,000

prescription refill orders.

-- The California Department of Insurance recently reported that Kaiser

Permanente, compared to its competitors, has more than four times the

percentage of members using electronic health records.

"This research shows we need to continue to demonstrate the value of health IT to the consumer, as organizations such as Kaiser Permanente are doing. The challenge for our industry is to adopt the technology that has been widely discussed, but not yet fully utilized for all," said James Hereford, executive vice president, Group Health Cooperative and a board member of the Center for Information Therapy. Group Health is a health services organization that both insures and provides care for over 560,000 consumers in Washington state and Idaho.
