Kaiser Permanente

Website: www.kp.org/newscenter/

Kaiser Permanente is committed to helping shape the future of health care. Founded in 1945, the company's mission is to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of members and the communities served. Kaiser Permanente is committed to improving the cardiovascular health of its members and communities across the U.S., so Kaiser Permanente's goals are very much aligned with Million Hearts®. Through Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect, Kaiser Permanente's electronic medical record system, and panel-based management tools, they are identifying members at-risk for cardiovascular care and then aggressively treating them and, when appropriate, providing chronic care management or surgical interventions. Kaiser Permanente's ALL/PHASE program, which is based on research that a simple bundle of low-cost medications Aspirin, Lisinopril and Lipid-lowering therapy in combination with a beta blocker and lifestyle changes, dramatically reduces heart attacks and strokes by 60 percent for at-risk populations, like diabetics, underscores that ABCS are an effective strategy. Kaiser Permanente's programs and similar innovations will compliment the aims of Million Hearts®.
