The Care Management Institute: Making the Right Thing Easier to Do

The Care Management Institute: Making the Right Thing Easier to Do

Paul Wallace, MD

Spring 2005 - Volume 9 Number 2

The Kaiser Permanente (KP) Care Management Institute's (CMI) defining mission is "Making the Right Thing Easier to Do," and for almost eight years, CMI has emphasized both developing the credible knowledge base (the "right thing") and operationalizing it (the "doing"). A thorough grounding in the science of medicine is absolutely necessary in clinical practice, but it is not in itself sufficient. Building the bridge between clinical research and practical clinical application for patients--combining evidence-based medicine with evidence-based management--is at the heart of Permanente Practice. It is for this reason that CMI cosponsored the Evidence-Based Medicine Symposium last December.
