Part of the support for PCHIT comes from Kaiser Permanente, which operates the kp.org portal for its patients. Part of what we’ll do is to demonstrate the work that organizations are doing alongside kp.org, which has 1,558,651 signed up for secure features, as of second quarter, 2007. I think that makes this one of the largest, if not the largest in the world.
Kaiser Permanente has posted a flash video of the new kp.org for external audiences which will include “My Health Manager.” Take a look – what do you think?
I hope to be shadowing in a Kaiser Permanente facility soon to observe how physicians and staff leverage kp.org in practice. The mid-Atlantic Region is pioneering online booking of medical appointments right now.
