George Halvorson, Kaiser Permanente

George Halvorson is the CEO who initiated and oversaw the biggest (private sector) EMR implementation ever. What’s Kaiser doing to expand on that? How is the new technology changing their thinking about care? How fast does George think the rest of health care is changing (very) and can others catch Kaiser (he thinks it would help Kaiser if they tried)? And what about getting other non-Epic apps on that KP system? I spoke with George at HIMSS yesterday, and his views are well worth a listen.

    I think it’s funny that one of the most motivated innovators in medicine today has such an unexcited demeanor. I was expecting a lot of over the top TED-esque language but he’s so relentlessly on point.
