Presented by Steve Adams, Executive Director, ABC


With over $50 billion in annual revenues, Kaiser Permanente is the nation’s largest nonprofit health plan with more than 9 million members. Running 37 hospitals and over 600 medical offices, it has operations in 9 states and the District of Columbia. As both an insurer and a provider, Kaiser Permanente has a distinct culture which blends centralized and decentralized decision making.


The effort to deliver the business change and supporting technology capabilities required by the Affordable Care Act provided significant challenges for Kaiser Permanente to prioritize and apportion limited investment funds and drive efficiency into IT operations. Steve Adams, Executive Director, ABC will discuss the progress made and barriers encountered on their journey from providing cost transparency to cost knowledge, and how cost knowledge will enable Kaiser Permanente to make informed decisions about the use of technology to drive innovation and improved financial results in the changing health care market place.
