I feel like this is the 'doing things differently' that we've been talking about for the past 20 years.
­ Sandra Barton, MD, Tualatin, Oregon (Northwest Region)

What is Dr Barton talking about and how is this possible? Dr Barton and many other primary care clinicians across Kaiser Permanente (KP) are part of a pilot project called the 21st Century Care Innovation Project. The purpose of this project is to leverage the use of KP HealthConnect (an organizationwide electronic health record system) to transform care and create thriving physician practices.
