In 1998, the President's Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry reported that improving the quality of health care "requires a commitment to delivering health care based on sound scientific evidence and continuously innovating new, effective health care practices and preventive approaches."1 Kaiser Permanente (KP) has a longstanding reputation for doing just that. Whether based on sound research conducted externally or internally, KP has the capacity and infrastructure to effectively transition research into innovative approaches to health care delivery and to health promotion and prevention.
