Integrated health care and coverage that optimizes workforce health


Fewer than half of Americans believe the country’s health care is properly managed, according to a 2022 poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.1 Navigating the U.S. medical system can be challenging for many. 

There’s a better way to deliver improved health care and health outcomes in Colorado. Kaiser Permanente does so with a value-based care model that rewards clinicians for providing the right care, not more care.

Kaiser Permanente combines health care and coverage in one integrated system to maximize employee health and minimize employer costs. Through a shared electronic health record, our care teams make decisions collaboratively to provide coordinated, personalized care.

A seamless care experience

Fragmented care was the norm for Coloradan Greta Walker — until she transitioned her care and coverage to Kaiser Permanente. 

Greta hoped to find a health plan that would help manage her challenging health needs in one place, including multiple prescription medications filled at different pharmacies. 

Kaiser Permanente’s New Member Connect Team put Greta at ease, assisting her with finding a primary care doctor whose focus on women’s health aligned with her personal health goals. She also met with one of Kaiser Permanente’s many clinical pharmacists within the first week of enrolling to transition her prescriptions.

Now, Greta is enjoying everything Kaiser Permanente offers — from fitness and mindfulness apps to skilled, friendly phlebotomists and pharmacists just down the hall from her doctor.
