Connected care

Our dermatologists work with your primary care and specialty care teams to make sure you get the right care, when you need it. We are all connected to each other — and you — through your electronic health record, so we are always on the same page when it comes to your care. Our primary care providers have the ability to conduct video and photo consultations with our skin care physicians, potentially saving patients from having to schedule a second doctor’s visit. In 2017, our skin care doctors completed more than 4,500 photo advice consultations with primary care and other specialty physicians.

We regularly meet with other physicians to coordinate care, best practices, and complex cases. We also have very close clinical relationships with doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, so if your child needs highly specialized hospital care, it is done in close coordination with your Kaiser Permanente doctors.

When you receive care from Kaiser Permanente providers, you can easily review your medical records and appointments online at kp.org or communicate with team members through email, telephone, video, or in-person visits. You can even include photos for your doctors to review.

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.
