Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program

The Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program is the largest group practice HMO in the United States (Friedman et al., 2000). Kaiser Permanente Northern California serves the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Clara and Sacramento Counties, and counties north of San Francisco. Kaiser Permanente Southern California serves residents in seven southern California counties: Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, San Diego, Riverside, Kern, and Imperial. Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) operates in the Portland, Oregon-Vancouver, Washington area and in two smaller communities, Salem, Oregon and Long-view-Kelso, Washington, each about 50 miles distant. Each of these regional entities operates its own health research department and manages its own databases (Friedman et al., 2000; Petitti, 2001).
