Research with an impact on health

Our research scientists address a broad range of health areas, focusing on real-world issues that affect our members. We collaborate with physicians in Kaiser Permanente medical centers to answer questions that arise when caring for their patients and translate those answers directly into practice. See the list below for types and examples of our research.

Our Care Improvement Research Team works to build capacity for research embedded in clinical practice to improve access, quality, and affordability of care for our patients, families, and communities. Learn more about CIRT and its projects.
