Kaiser Permanente's disease management approach to addressing the obesity epidemic
Histon TM, Goeldner JL, Bachman KH, Rothert K

Abstract Objective: To describe a comprehensive, population-based weight management program. Setting: A large, not-for-profit integrated health care delivery system. Program: The initiative focuses efforts in 5 areas: (1) clinical management, (2) community partnerships, (3) legislation/public policy, (4) successful practices dissemination, and (5) research. Implementation of guidelines and programs is local, allowing regions to maximize impact by leveraging tools, services, and new technologies in ways that best suit their unique operational structures. Results: Initiative-based interventions have been implemented in the areas of prevention and treatment of obesity in children and adolescents, preventing overweight and obesity in adults, identifying and managing adults at high risk of an adverse medical event, and treating severe obesity. Conclusion: Weight management is a complex and rapidly evolving field that requires key partnerships and a multidisciplinary team approach to target interventions effectively
