Physician-led, patient-centered care — that’s Permanente Medicine
On the road to recovery, a member’s personal doctor leads the way. Kaiser Permanente doctors practice Permanente Medicine — using evidence-based treatment and innovative technology to deliver personalized care. And our integrated model means doctors aren’t burdened by the business of running a practice — so they can focus on what’s best for our members. Our physicians are empowered to make important care decisions, but our members’ voice is always the most important one in the room.
Kaiser Permanente has one of the nation’s largest multispecialty medical groups. Our highly skilled, experienced specialists in oncology, cardiac care, perinatology, and other specialty care disciplines are among the best in the world. Our doctors and specialists deliver coordinated care that’s supported by industry leading research, advanced medical technology, top-notch facilities, and efficient workflows, tools, and systems.
The advantages of our holistic care
Specialty care is connected to everything we do, from preventive screenings and doctor visits to follow-up care and ongoing condition management. Unlike most plans, we offer all these services in one seamless, integrated system. Our coordinated care teams have instant access to a member’s electronic health record, enabling them to think and act as one.
Every Kaiser Permanente member has unique care needs. When a member is diagnosed, their primary care physician works with specialists and the member to create a tailored treatment plan. They coordinate across locations and specialties to deliver seamless, effective care.
We’re passionate about constantly improving health care. When one of our doctors or researchers develops a better way to treat an illness, we share this knowledge across the organization. Kaiser Permanente includes 8 regional research centers. In 2017 alone, we were involved in 2,540 research studies — half of which were clinical trials. This gives our members access to state-of-the-art treatment.
