Kaiser Permanente, Johns Hopkins Announce Collaboration, Advancing HIT a Focus

Two of the most well-known healthcare organizations in the country--Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins Medicine--announced a collaborative this week that will allow the two to, among other things, share best practices on electronic medical record (EMR) usage.

At the center of the collaboration, the organizations say, is an attempt to leverage the strengths of two established organizations and advance the healthcare system toward evidenced-based medicine and advanced population health. The two plan on collaborating on education and research initiatives. One specific goal is to advance clinical information access for patients and providers as well as personalized medicine through IT.

“Working more closely with Johns Hopkins Medicine will help us deliver an innovative care experience for our members that will translate into quality care that’s also affordable,” Kim Horn, president of Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States, said in a statement. “This strategic collaboration will facilitate additional population health research and innovative practices benefiting both individual patients and the larger community.”

The two organizations have worked together in the past, specifically the Mid-Atlantic States’ Kaiser Permanente and John Hopkins’ Suburban Hospital.
