Better care from a connected team

When you’re a Kaiser Permanente member, your whole care team is connected — to you, and to each other — through your electronic health record. Every visit is captured, so your doctor can use your health history to inform your care. If you need to see a specialist, they’ll have important information about your health before they even meet you in person.2 And when you fill a new prescription, your pharmacist can make sure it’s safe to take with your other medications. This enables us to deliver the right care faster — and help members avoid unnecessary visits, serious health conditions, and sleepless nights. 

 

At Kaiser Permanente, you get a connected care team with you at the center. Our health plans, primary care, specialty care, pharmacy and labs, and digital care options are all connected.

Connected care makes your life easier

Our doctors, hospitals, and health plans are all part of one team. That means your eye doctor can remind you if you’re overdue for a cancer screening. And the app you use to view your lab results is the same one you use to pay your bills. It takes the hassle out of health care — so you can focus on living your life.

A partner in health

When everything about your health care, including your health plan, is connected, everyone is equally invested in your total health. We take an active role in helping to keep you healthy from the minute you become a member — not just when you get sick or injured. Because of our care model, it’s in everyone’s best interest to provide the right care, not more care — and when our members thrive, everyone wins. 
 

Preventive care to help you stay ahead of health problems

Many common health conditions are preventable — so a proactive approach to prevention is the foundation of how we practice medicine. When you’re a Kaiser Permanente member, your electronic health record triggers automatic reminders for screenings, so we can let you know when it’s time to make an appointment. Your care team sees a complete picture of your health at every visit. And your care gets documented along the way. It’s how we help many members avoid serious health issues, and help others catch problems before they’re serious.

Specialty care you can trust

When faced with serious health problems, you’ll get great doctors, the latest technology, and evidence-based care — all working together to support your journey back to health.
