Integrated Care Model

Kaiser Permanente’s health plans are regularly rated as among the best in the nation.  For example, the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Health Insurance Plan Rating 2016-17 report found that, for a second year, Kaiser Permanente Southern California’s Medicare Plan received a 5 out of 5 overall rating for consumer experience, prevention services and clinical treatment outcomes.

The secret to these repeated high quality-of-care ratings is our physician collaboration, with doctors, hospitals and a health plan all working together, in an integrated model of care, aiming to better the health of our patients.

 

“This recognition from NCQA is a tremendous acknowledgment of our talented and caring physicians, nurses and other care providers,” said Edward M. Ellison, MD, executive medical director of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group. “Kaiser Permanente’s integrated health care model brings together care teams dedicated to helping each member reach their greatest health potential. Our patient-centered compassionate care is how we are leading the way to be an answer to health and health care in America.”

“This recognition is a tribute to the superior medical care, rapid access and personalized service our physicians and staff provide patients every day,” said Robert Pearl, MD, executive director and CEO of The Permanente Medical Group. “Our integrated model combined with the most advanced technology allow our members to obtain care whenever and wherever they need it. If every American received the excellence in health care we provide through Kaiser Permanente, we could lower the mortality from cardiovascular disease by 30 percent and from sepsis by 40 percent.”

“The central difference between Kaiser and every other organization is its fully integrated model,” said Ha Tu, a senior researcher at Mathematica Policy Research in Washington, D.C., in the Sacramento Business Journal.  “It’s not just health care delivery, but a fully integrated delivery system and health plan that accepts full risk — so there are not any conflicting incentives.”
