Page 3 What is Kaiser Permanente?
Page 4 Kaiser Permanente History In 1934 Dr. Sidney Garfield and Industrial Indemnity team up during a time when everything was fee for service. Executives suggested 5 cents per day per person. Kaiser membership grew to 100,000 during WWII and dropped below 15,000 at the end of the war when peace time jobs became available. Physicians visited the job sites to develop processes to prevent injuries. Kaiser Oakland Hospital opened in the 1940s and it was not segregated unlike most other hospitals at that time.

Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is the nation’s largest not-for-profit health plan, serving more than 9 million members, with headquarters in Oakland, California. Kaiser Foundation Hospitals Kaiser Foundation Hospitals is a nonprofit, public benefit corporation that owns and operates community hospitals in California, Oregon, and Hawaii. The corporation owns outpatient facilities in several states; provides or arranges hospital services; and sponsors charitable, educational, and research activities. Kaiser Foundation Health Plans The Kaiser Foundation Health Plans are nonprofit, public benefit corporations that contract with Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and medical groups to provide services. In our regions that are not hospital-based, they may contract with non-Kaiser hospitals. The Health Plans are the health insurance component of the organization. Each region has its own health plan company. Permanente Medical Groups Permanente Medical Groups are partnerships or professional corporations of physicians, represented nationally by The Permanente Federation, which contract exclusively with the Kaiser Foundation Health Plans to provide or arrange medical services for members and patients. The Permanente Federation

You cannot access your own record or those of family members in KP HealthConnect. 2.“Minimum Necessary” – only access, use or disclose minimum information needed to do your job. 3.Safeguard patients’ information as if it were your own. This applies to electronic, written and verbal information. 4.Report to your supervisor or Compliance Officer immediately when you have concerns or observed situations impacting privacy of individual patients or organizational expectations. 5.Never Assume - Confirm that PHI (Protected Health Information) is necessary information. If you don’t know ask your supervisor or Compliance Officer. 6.Golden Rule - Always treat patient information as if it were your own and a patient’s important personal matter.
