Register for the Santa Monica Classic 5K/10K on Sept. 11

In the spirit of supporting total health and wellness, Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles has partnered with the Conqur Endurance Group, a local race organizer, as the official healthcare sponsor of the Santa Monica Classic 5K/10K race on September 11, 2016. Offering a picturesque course with ocean views and a finish line that is steps from the world-famous Santa Monica Pier, this race welcomes runners as well as walkers (and those with strollers, too). Kaiser Permanente will support race participants with healthy living messages, training and nutrition tips, and events leading up to race day. We will also celebrate runners and walkers with free massages and a stretching/cool down area at the Finish Festival on the Santa Monica Pier. “Kaiser Permanente is thrilled to be involved in this event and in this vibrant community that supports active living and total health. We are excited to support and celebrate the runners throughout their training and on race day,”says Georgina Garcia, senior vice president, area manager for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan & Hospitals.   For weekly training tips, follow @KPWestLA on Twitter.

Beyond the Doctor’s Office – Improving Access Through Virtual Care

Commuting, traffic, parking, and sitting in a waiting room can all be avoided with virtual healthcare, a convenient and innovative way of delivering care that many Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles members and clinicians are embracing. With telehealth, the ability to offer a broad scope of remote health care services, members can easily access clinicians via phone visits, emails, online and through their smart phones. Integrated video visits (IVVs), in particular, are becoming a popular alternative to the traditional in-person doctor’s visit at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles. Currently four departments at the West Los Angeles medical center are using integrated video visits – including Psychiatry, Orthopedics, Pediatrics and Physical Medicine - and many more departments are expected to offer this option in the near future. "It’s estimated that approximately 30 to 35 percent of doctor visits at West LA are eligible to be delivered via video consult," says Walt Engler, group leader in Strategy, Decision Support & Transformation at KP West Los Angeles. In the last year, more than 300 KP West LA members experienced integrated video visits at West Los Angeles, and the number is growing daily. Psychiatry is currently leading the charge with the highest number of IVVs followed by Physical Medicine and Orthopedics. Click here to read the full story.
