The idealistic HMO : can good care survive the market?
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hedrick Smith investigates Kaiser Permanente--the largest nonprofit HMO in the U.S.--and its social mission of lifetime care. Although it has pioneered improvements such as mass screening for colon cancer and special team care for patients with diabetes and HIV, Kaiser has also drawn fire for unpopular cost-cutting measures and for allegedly neglecting needy communities.
