What to Expect at an Open Program

To serve a broad range of participants, KP International hosts virtual and in-person open programs for health care leaders whose work is based outside the United States. Features of an open program include a comprehensive look at the Kaiser Permanente model provided by a large number of expert speakers in a small group setting.

In a KP International open program, we share key aspects of Kaiser Permanente’s success: a focus on quality and continuous improvement, an emphasis on robust technologies that enable optimal care and service for members, and a collaborative leadership approach.

Open programs are conducted in English, and real-time text and voice translation in a number of other languages may be available.

If your organization would like to explore specific learning objectives with an option for interpretation in your language, you might consider a customized program.
