Kaiser Permanente, a Rockville, Md.-based health plan and care provider, opened the doors to its new medical facility on Jan. 24, 2011, bringing health care innovation directly to the front door of Capitol Hill. The Kaiser Permanente Capitol Hill Medical Center offers members state-of-the-art health care and maximum convenience.
With 79 provider offices staffed by approximately 400 employees and physicians, the new Kaiser Permanente Capitol Hill Medical Center boasts primary care, specialty care, full-service imaging, laboratory, pharmacy services, and 24/7 urgent care services—all supported by industry-leading technology and information systems. The medical center is equipped with digital signage technology—video walls—that enhances the member experience while reinforcing preventive care resources.
The medical center is fully wired with Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®, the most advanced electronic medical record system available today, with kiosks in each exam room to help clinicians provide outstanding quality, assist patients in making certain they have received the preventive care they require, and maximize patient safety by identifying risks to patients, such as potentially harmful drug combinations. Patients also have the added convenience of being able to access their medical records, make appointments, send secure e-mail to their physicians, and order prescription refills online, through My Health Manager at kp.org.
