Presented as Kanter M, Schottinger J, Odell R. "New technologies in health care: an evidence-based approach to evaluating new technologies," at the Kaiser Permanente Care Management Institute and The Permanente Journal Evidence-Based Medicine Symposium, Costa Mesa, California, December 3-4, 2004.

Introduction

Kaiser Permanente (KP) has a robust process for evaluating, deploying, and monitoring new types of medical technology, including devices, equipment, diagnostics, and procedures. This process provides guidance and management of new and existing medical technology to ensure that physicians of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group (SCPMG) can provide state-of-the art care. The success of the process depends on participation of a variety of internal professional and physician experts as well as other internal groups, such as the Interregional New Technologies Committee, Laboratory Committees, and Pharmacy Committees.
