We'll never stop searching for new and better ways to support your total health - and sharing our discoveries with the world.
As one of the nation’s most productive research institutions, we’re always rethinking, measuring, and evolving the way we deliver care and treat illness. That means you get treatment that’s based on the best information available — and care that’s always improving.
We’ve published more than 1,200 articles on this topic since 2007, which together have been cited nearly 75,000 times. And research published in the American Journal of Medicine in 2018 showed that Kaiser Permanente is a leader in reducing deaths from heart disease and stroke.
Kaiser Permanente researchers study many aspects of cancer, including screening programs, the role of genetics in cancer risk, and developing new treatments. For example, in 2018 we published a study that showed a decline in deaths from colorectal cancer since we launched our screening program. And the National Cancer Institute recently awarded several health care organizations, including Kaiser Permanente, $32 million to improve screening in lung, colon, and cervical cancer screening.
As one of the largest providers of HIV care in the United States, our research has informed policy and practice to help people live longer, healthier lives. Kaiser Permanente researchers hold leadership roles in the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, the HIV Medical Association, and the American Academy of HIV Medicine.
The Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine offers more than a conventional medical education. It immerses students in the Permanente Medicine approach to care — and prepares future physicians to become collaborative, transformative leaders who help communities thrive.
