Kaiser Permanente was founded in the year 1945. The company has been active for almost 73 years now. The founders of the company were Sidney R Garfield and Henry J Kaiser. The origin of the company goes back to the year 1933 when Kaiser along with other large construction contractors had formed an insurance company, known as Industrial Indemnity, in order to meet the demands of the compensation of the workers. The company slowly started to grow more by insuring large groups of construction workers, who were doing their work in the same region. During World War II, there was an increased number of workers in the Richmond Shipyard. Kaiser had also set up insurance plans for these workers as well. This company was the direct descendant of the current company named as Kaiser Permanente.
By the year 1958, the company had expanded to Hawaii. In the year 1960, the number of memberships in the company had grown to almost more than 808,000. As of the year 1976, the total number of memberships had reached nearly three million. In the year 1985, the company had expanded to Georgia, USA. In the year 1990, the company started providing total coverage for almost one-third of the population of the cities such as Oakland and San Francisco, USA. In the year 2000, the company had sold its unprofitable Northeast division. As of the year 1995, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary as a public health plan company. In the year 2002, the company had abandoned its attempt to build its own clinical information system with IBM, writing-off almost $452 million in overall software assets. This information technology failure led to significant changes in the organization's approach as well as to digital records too. The company had looked carefully at two medical software vendors, Cerner and Epic Systems - ultimately choosing Epic as the leading vendor for a new system, which was branded as KP HealthConnect, later on. By the year 2010, the system was the most extensive civilian system of keeping electronic medical records. As of the year 2013, the company had sold off its Ohio Division to Catholic Health Partners. The headquarters of the company is based in 1 Kaiser Plaza. The name of the place is Oakland, while the name of the state is California, USA. The pin code of the area is 94612.
