Here at the Center, Kaiser Permanente International offers a forum for sharing Kaiser Permanente’s knowledge and experience with governments, health plans, health care providers, and other global organizations that are striving to improve their health care systems. Recently, Kaiser Permanente International presented their customized, educational program for health specialists in the Division of Social Protection and Health of the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB).
If you are unfamiliar with IADB Division of Social Protection and Health, it is composed of health specialists primarily from Latin America and the Caribbean. The purpose of IADB Division is to promote equity and empower vulnerable populations throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. The IADB’s Division hopes to improve health outcomes to individuals living in extreme poverty through three goals: increasing access to redistributive programs in areas, increasing care for children to stimulate cognitive development, and promoting social inclusion services.
Kaiser Permanente International exposed the IADB Division to innovative, technical and managerial tools Kaiser Permanente currently uses in their medical model that could be applied to Latin America and Caribbean health care practices. During the two-day event, the IADB Division health specialists participated in two informative tours: one with Ted Eytan, MD, the medical director of the Center for Total Health, who shared the concept of “total health” with our guests through our interactive displays and a second tour, led by Carla Sandy, MD, service chief, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Ashlee Metcalf, MD,Adult and Family Medicine, Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic region.
