Kaiser Permanente – Adopting SAFe to Build the Future of Healthcare

Reimagined technology and clinical workflows transform home care for members


Kaiser Permanente is one of America’s leading not-for-profit health care providers and not-for-profit health plans serving 12.5 million members.

Driven by new technologies and evolving expectations for patient convenience, the golden age of care at home may be just around the corner. Reimagined technology and clinical workflows will transform coordinated and patient-centered care for Kaiser Permanente members in the comfort of their own homes.

In this video, Agile coach Steven Archer and IT leader Kari Powelson share their SAFe journey and the “ART” of making SAFe work at KP. They will describe how their Care Delivery Technology Services and Clinical Operations development teams came together to build new software and workflows and set out to prove that KP Care at Home is the future of healthcare and that it can be a great experience for members and clinicians alike.
