The Kaiser Permanente Center for Effectiveness & Safety Research enhances opportunities to answer questions about which interventions work best for whom across all of Kaiser Permanente’s regions by investing in the ongoing development of the Virtual Data Warehouse, convening researchers and organizational leaders at an annual meeting and via webinars, and by conducting research. The center routinely partners with investigators in Kaiser Permanente's regional research centers and with selected operational analytical groups.
