Building on its KP HealthConnect e-medical records system, which contains data for 8.8 million patients, Kaiser Permanente is advancing telemedicine applications, especially around dermatology and orthopedics. KP primary-care physicians take high-resolution photos of patients' skin conditions and store them on KP computer systems for real-time patient consults with remote dermatologists, including wound care. KP is also rolling out telemedicine for orthopedic and spine consultations, and for clinical decision support. In KP's Northern California region, the organization is piloting a program using mobile video carts that allow KP patients who do not speak English or who use sign language to connect with a language translator who is on call but not on-site.

Uniform Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is so important - it facilitates basic healthcare business processes, including claims transactions, remittance advices and eligibility and enrollment transactions.
