Reducing risk with prevention and early intervention
Our primary care physicians have access to unparalleled support and resources designed to help them manage the full spectrum of each patient’s care. And our integrated approach helps ensure continuity of care and enables seamless collaboration among caregivers who have direct access to your employees’ health information. That helps Kaiser Permanente members with chronic conditions receive earlier detection — and more effective treatment.
We intervene with many members early — even before they have symptoms or get diagnosed with a disease — using health status, risk factors, and family history to assess their risk status for a chronic condition. And our electronic health record triggers automatic reminders for screenings, so it’s not up to the member to initiate every care encounter. We stay in touch to help your employees stay up to date.
Data-driven best practices
Using decades of health data gathered through our electronic health record system, we’ve developed decision support tools that help identify members at risk for preventable events like hospital readmissions. Doctors use these predictive modeling tools to make informed and effective clinical recommendations and protocols.
