Connected care

We use an integrated approach to manage your care. This means that your primary care provider will know about your care, every step of the way. If you need spine care, expedited treatment, or have questions you need answered, we partner with your doctor to get you the right care, when you need it.

From doctors to clinical pharmacists, everyone involved in your care is connected to each other — and to you — through your electronic medical record, so they are always on the same page when it comes to your care.

The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.

Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.

Each year, Kaiser Permanente doctors are recognized as top doctors by their peers and publications such as 5280 magazine. Some have joined us from top-ranked academic training programs and successful private practices. Others have been honored for their invaluable contributions to medical advancements and new surgical techniques that help patients heal quickly and with less pain.

Our hospital partners have a track record of success and are often recognized as regional or national centers of excellence for their specialties. We also partner with national organizations, contributing to large, cutting-edge, research projects.
