Date:5/6/2013

dy its highly diverse and representative member population as a way to better understand chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis. In January, a Kaiser Permanente study published in the journal Neurology found obesity in teenage girls was associated with an increased risk of developing MS. Researchers are also currently recruiting patients for the MS Sunshine Study to examine the complex interactions between MS risk factors such as sunshine, low vitamin D, skin tone, infections, other environmental and genetic factors across racial/ethnic groups. Researchers expect to release findings of this study in 2015.

Kaiser Permanente can conduct transformational health research like this study in part because it has the largest private electronic health system in the world. The organization's integrated model and electronic health record system, Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®, securely connects 9 million people, 611 medical offices, and 37 hospitals, linking patients with their health care teams, their personal health information and the latest medical knowledge. It also connects Kaiser Permanente's research scientists, clinicians and operational leaders to one of the most extensive collections of longitudinal medical data available, facilitating studies and important medical discoveries that shape the future of health and care delivery for patients and the medical community.

Other study authors included: Sonu M. Brara , MD, and Brandon E. Beaber , MD, of the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Los Angeles Medical Center, Neurology Department; and Jian L. Zhang , MS, of the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation.
