Meet The

Innovation Champions

Health Innovation has created a region-wide innovation group called the 20•20 Champions. This group exists to DISCOVER new ideas, CONNECT the organization, and ACCELERATE change. Each of our 13 Southern California medical centers are represented by a physician and administrative partner who serve as ambassadors of innovation with a direct line into the exciting transformational work being done throughout Kaiser Permanente.

Meet the dynamic duos.

Each 20•20 Champion is the cornerstone of progress within their individual medical center. Together, the physician and administrative duos bridge the divide and expand the reach of obtainable, patient-centered healthcare.
