Program Recap

The Innovation + Transformation at Kaiser Permanente program in September 2018 highlighted how Kaiser Permanente places the patient at the center of care and engages members in informing and designing solutions that improve the quality and experience of the care they receive. Participants explored Kaiser Permanente’s approach to quality, technology, team-based care, and experience design. Check out the visual notes that capture the overview of Kaiser Permanente, just one segment of the two-day program.

Educational Seminars

In two or three hours, gain an overview of the Kaiser Permanente model, or dive deeper into a specialized topic.

Health care leaders who are visiting the San Francisco Bay Area may register for an introductory seminar at Kaiser Permanente’s headquarters in Oakland, California. Our experts will provide you with an overview of the Kaiser Permanente model and encourage questions and discussion. Advanced seminars may also be available for visitors who want a deeper dive into a focused topic such as quality, technology, or patient-centered care. In most cases, a fee will be charged. We encourage you to plan two to three months in advance, as seminars are subject to availability. Due to space limitations, the maximum group size is usually 10 to 20. Seminars may also be held at the Center for Total Health in Washington, DC, and certain sessions may be presented virtually.

Please submit a Seminar Request Form if you are interested, and we will contact you about the options.
