Panel Discussion on Integration of Stakeholders in Healthcare: The Kaiser Permanente Experience – Summary:

Eugene Y. Rhee, MD, MBA, Regional Coordinating Chief of Urology at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California (KPSCAL) discusses the Kaiser Permanente model and how doctors, hospitals, and health plans work together on coordinated care. Focusing on San Diego, he notes several unique geographic factors that make the city an island in terms of care and which have led to a long history of risk-sharing between medical groups. Dr. Rhee goes on to demonstrate their shared decision-making model for prostate cancer biomarkers and explains how they decide when to deploy fusion MRI for prostate biopsy. He also notes that the 13 medical centers in the KPSCAL region rotate their fusion MRI machine, making coordination and cooperation among physicians paramount.
