Jeff Benabio is Physician Director of Healthcare Transformation at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, CA.
In addition to being a board-certified practicing dermatologist, he develops strategies and programs that
use innovation, design, and technology to move medicine into a modern age.

Dr. Benabio leads of one of the country’s largest telehealth programs and is also a leading voice for using
