Kaiser Permanente and John Hopkins Medicine said Tuesday that they plan to expand on an existing relationship between the health care organizations to improve quality of care for patients. The insurer, which operates its own medical centers, and the top academic medical center plan to collaborate on education and research endeavors, share best practices and develop new health care models. They will work to improve patient safety and treatment outcomes while reducing costs. And the pair will also strengthen their relationship at Suburban Hospital, a Hopkins hospital located in Bethesda.
