With the current wave of interest in prepaid group practice, now called health maintenance organizations, the symposium on the Kaiser-Permanente system and the report of its proceedings come at an especially crucial time. There have been voluminous discussions concerning prepaid group practice but very little in terms of a comprehensive written analysis regarding the concept.
A major strength of the symposium is its comprehensiveness, which ranges from a discussion of the basic philosophy and organization of the Kaiser system to an analysis of new approaches to new areas. This strength is also carried over in the cohesiveness of the presentation.
