[Type the company name] | Kaiser Permanente | Davies Award Reflection Assignment | | | | Kaiser Permanente (KP) is the largest not-for-profit integrated delivery system in the United States, and as of 2010, it has almost 200,000 employees and physicians, approximately 9 million active members, and $40 billion in revenue. Even though KP was utilizing database technology since the past four decades, it decided in 2003 to overhaul its systems and invest heavily ($4 billion) in creating a consolidated EMR called KP HealthConnect (KPHC), whose goal was to transform care and service delivery. To succeed in this monumental undertaking, KP implemented the Blue Sky Vision, which concluded that in 2015 “a successful health organization would recognize that the true primary care provider has always been the patient and his or her network of family and friends. The patient’s home would be the center of early diagnostics and service, with care givers serving as advisors on service options, clinical efficacy, genetic profile influence, and cost considerations. The Blue Sky Vision, they further concluded, could be achieved with technology that already existed, including long-standing technology such as the telephone”.

AMTC had been experiencing a rapid growth as they have a big allocation for their research and development that resulted in sales growth of more than 30% per year.

In 1983, Biological Labs entered into an agreement with AMTC by paying AMTC $7 million in exchange for 5% of the outstanding shares and an additional 13% of the outstanding shares over a 5-year period for $12 million. After the payment is done, Biological Labs will have the right to merge with AMTC.
2 cause of death in the country. The organization was founded in 1913 by 10 physicians and five others as the American Society for the Control of Cancer. Now incorporated, ACS continues to further its mission through research, education, public policy involvement, community outreach and treatment services provided for millions of patients. Based on allocation of funds for the fiscal year ending August 2008, each of the association’s four main activities (research, prevention, patient support and detection/treatment) receives a relatively similar share of American Cancer Society’s annual revenue—specifically 15, 18, 26 and 14 percent, respectively. A fairly hefty 27 percent goes toward management expenses and fundraising activities—which means it is nowhere near as efficient an organization as the best-run nonprofits.” (Vault career intelligence, 2011) The Importance of the organization’s ethical values supporting your ethical values.
