As one of the largest healthcare organizations in the United States, Kaiser Permanente often teams with pharmaceutical companies, research foundations and government agencies to conduct research. Kaiser Permanente wanted to free up IT resources, improve patient care by supplying HIV caregivers with automated access to detailed hospitalization and medication reports. To master these challenges Kaiser Permanente chose SAS Institute. SAS allows Kaiser to grant medical professionals access to query and reporting capabilities via Web portal. The new HIV application using the SAS Business Intelligence portal and Web reporting capabilities allows end users including researchers, HIV doctors, nurses and care coordinators to log in and view the reports that they want to see at their own convenience.
