High-quality health care for all (2024)

Innovation that puts better health within everyone’s reach

We'll never stop searching for new and better ways to support your total health — and sharing our discoveries with the world.

We’re exploring how to screen for cancer most effectively and consistently across different settings, so all communities can receive the greatest benefit. Funded by the National Cancer Institute, this project brings multiple health systems together to address the preventive care disparities that contribute to poorer cancer outcomes among certain populations. Together, we’ll figure out how all people can get effective, consistent cancer screenings, regardless of who they are, where they live, or their income level.

We use inherited risk calculators to identify members who are more likely to develop certain cancers. Then we create individualized plans for genetic counseling and/or testing and provide ongoing support to help prevent these conditions altogether — or help catch them before they become life-threatening.

Many of the most effective, cutting-edge treatments in medicine are the results of clinical trials. Kaiser Permanente members have a unique advantage — our electronic health record system maps their treatment histories with current, relevant clinical trials designed to tackle serious illnesses.

At Kaiser Permanente, we are always looking for new and improved ways to support your health and recovery from illness. With
