Electronic Health Record Supports Research:

Kaiser Permanente has the largest private electronic medical record system in the world with over 10 million medical records on file — and uses the data very effectively to support the delivery of care. We are the first health care organization to win the national continuous availability award for its major data centers.
Residents are able to access images, review real time lab and consult results, answer telephone and email messages to their patients on site as well as with a secure token off site. There are links to pharmacy and publication databases at bedside for reference support during patient care activities.
