Healthier Outcomes

At Kaiser Permanente we have one simple mission — to help people everywhere get the care and coverage they need.

Which is why we have a community of over 17,000 doctors committed to providing excellent care today, which leads to healthier tomorrows. From cancer to cardiology to high blood pressure and stroke, the excellent care we provide leads to healthier outcomes for our members.

A better approach to care

We believe the best way to measure quality of care is by outcomes. Our unique approach includes:

  • Personalized care from doctors, nurses, and other caregivers that are connected to you and to each other through one of the most advanced electronic health record system available today.
  • A focus on prevention and providing the inspiration, tools, and information you need for healthier tomorrows.
  • Online tools and mobile apps that let you stay on top of your health and manage your
    care anytime, anywhere.
  • Research and innovation that is pioneering new ways to prevent, detect, and treat illness.
