At Kaiser Permanente, our research guides our clinicians' practice patterns and further optimizes the health and medical care of our members. It also contributes to the wealth of medical knowledge worldwide.

Why, in 2014 alone, Kaiser Permanente invested $39 million in medical research development and saw more than 1,200 articles published in peer-reviewed journals.

Kaiser Permanente has investigators and staff based at seven regional research centers and one national center. Clinician researchers work at medical centers across all regions.

  • The Center for Clinical and Outcomes Research (Georgia)
  • The Centers for Health Research (Northwest, Hawaii)
  • The Department of Research & Evaluation (Southern California)
  • The Division of Research (Northern California)
  • The Institute for Health Research (Colorado)
  • Mid-Atlantic Permanente Research Institute (Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia)
  • The Center for Effectiveness & Safety Research (National)

In addition to studies centered at these facilities, our physicians and researchers conduct clinical trials of new drugs, medical devices, and other therapies through several organized centers and independently at single sites. Put together, Kaiser Permanente's research centers and scientists comprise one of the largest and most comprehensive nonacademic research programs in the United States.

Our research centers and research teams have access to comprehensive services such as regulatory affairs, compliance and audit assistance, bioanalytic and data management support, integrated clinical trials management system, institutional review board, grants and finance administration, study feasibility assessment, and community benefits funding, among others.
