Across the Kaiser Permanente (KP) program innovative solutions to problems are developed and implemented daily. Frequently, in program offices, in a region, in a medical center, or in other business units, these processes are identified as being successful practices and leadership encourages their transfer to other locations. Unfortunately, as in most large organizations, the frequency of transfer within KP tends to be low.
