Under a new collaboration, Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins Medicine will expand ways to deliver quality care by sharing evidence-based best practices, advancing population health programs, collaborating on education and research endeavors, and exploring how the organizations can work together to create better health care models for consumers and their communities, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.
The agreement between the two healthcare organizations will initially focus on the following:
- Sharing best practices and leveraging electronic medical records to accommodate the growing need among providers and patients to access clinical information quickly and efficiently.
- Strengthening the relationship between Kaiser Permanente and Suburban Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, by combining their collective expertise to create an advanced model of care.
- Bringing care into the home to meet the evolving needs of patients by exploring and leveraging technology to deliver personalized medicine.
- Building on the existing collaboration between Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins’ Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality to advance the patient experience and improve treatment outcomes while reducing costs.
- Pursuing opportunities to develop educational programs and research-based best practices that benefit the overall health of the people in the communities we serve.
The collaboration between Johns Hopkins Medicine and Kaiser Permanente will escalate medical solutions from the bench to the bedside, in order to provide patients with value-based care.
