Population-based care

Kaiser Permanente has developed population-based care programs for members with similar clinical characteristics, such as diabetes, heart care, breast care, and depression. Other programs are under development. Kaiser Permanente continually evaluates the need to develop additional population-based care programs.

Our population-based approach allows us to identify members in priority populations and then to partner with their practitioners to offer a variety of services. Each population-based program has measurable goals and plans for improvement which include:

  • Defining eligibility criteria for the identified population
  • Developing evidence-based guidelines
  • Designing measurement methodologies to track organizational performance
  • Developing tools to assist practitioners in caring for these members, such as registries, panel reports, pamphlets, and other self-management tools

We automatically enroll members when they are identified and will inform you of their participation. If you would like to enroll a member in one of these programs, contact your Provider Services or health plan consultant or email kpwa.provider-services@kp.org.

A member's secure online account also offers self-management support tools, health information, condition centers, and other resources.

Kaiser Permanente develops an annual quality program description to guide its clinical improvement work. For more information, including a description of Kaiser Permanente's quality program and a report on progress in meeting its goals, contact your Provider Services consultant.
