Quality Improvement has been the cornerstone of Kaiser Permanente’s partnership with the safety net. In addition to grant funding, Kaiser Permanente shares their knowledge, experience and clinical practices. Our collaboration with Kaiser Permanente and other safety net providers is focused on continuously improving the patient experience. Working together, we are addressing chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. We are making sustainable change that builds our capacity, so that we can help more people in need.
California’s safety net plays a vital role in caring for Californians who don’t have health insurance or are under-insured. Quality Improvement support from Kaiser Permanente bolsters the larger health care delivery system by helping more people get access to quality health care. The project is supported by Kaiser Permanente through a fund established at the East Bay Community Foundation.
