The center features demonstration stations highlighting telemedicine and mobile health applications as well as new technologies for medication adherence, according to a Kaiser news release. Visitors will be able to interact with an 80-foot-long touch-screen mural that offers information about the health benefits of walking.
"The idea for the Center for Total Health was born as a compelling way to share what Kaiser Permanente continues to learn about the kinds of health improvements we can make in this country," Philip Fasano, Kaiser Permanente's executive vice president and chief information officer, said in the release. "The center will be the first place that leaders and the general public can go to see the real-world convergence of health, healthcare technology and innovation."
