Here's what you missed at the Center for Total Health in October
October was a busy month at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health. We were proud to host a variety of groups for tours and meetings. We started the month with the management team of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) meeting for their planning meeting, using the Center's exhibitions and sound meeting policies as a backdrop for planning efforts. The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) a public-private partnership with the sole purpose of advancing the science of regulating medical devices, held its meeting at the Center, while the Center ( NITAAC) met with entrepreneurs supporting the IT infrastructure and health systems architecture for the NIH.
The Center welcomed several additional groups to advance their work in a wide variety of health fields:
As always, Kaiser Permanente organized several of its own meetings at the Center with key stakeholders and opinion leaders. While Kaiser Permanente International hosted the World Bank and influential representatives from several Latin American countries to think about ways to improve their health systems, other departments of Kaiser Permanente organized meetings with the Association des Mutuelles de Santé. (AMHIC) and Federal Health Benefit Agents to discuss benefits and the range of services offered to its members.
Throughout the month of October, the Center also hosted various tourist groups, including: Embassy of Canada Staff of the Department of Health of George Washington University National Coordinator of Health Information Technology .
We closed the month with conference participants from the American College of Emergency Medicine attending an evening reception at the Center with staff and doctors from Kaiser Permanente. The Center was also proud to serve as a backdrop for a video production on clinical excellence.
If you would like to know more about the above meetings, we will be happy to introduce you to the key contacts of any of the participating organizations. At the Center, we are proud to help establish meaningful links between our guests and to advance the initiatives discussed here.
Launched in November: We will begin preliminary visits for our new tour on mental health and well-being at the Center. If you want a preview, be sure to schedule an hour to see the content currently under development. At the Center, we work with various departments of Kaiser Permanente to destigmatize mental health issues and promote access to care and other resources.
The Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health hosts internal and external educational events. All events – including annual banquets, quarterly meetings, trainings, interviews – offer healthy dining options and can be customized to incorporate interactive exhibits that make the Center for Total Health experience fun and informative for the participants. If your organization wishes to organize an event, please send us an event request via our website. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
