Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, JPMorgan Chase Health Care Venture Launches Website and Announces Its Name: Haven

BOSTON, March 06, 2019–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, the health care organization founded by Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A, BRK.B), and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM), announced its name – Haven – and launched a new website at www.havenhealthcare.com.

“We want to change the way people experience health care so that it is simpler, better, and lower cost,” explained Haven CEO Atul Gawande, MD, MPH. “We’ll start small, learn from the experience of patients, and continue to expand to meet their needs.”

In recent months, Dr. Gawande has been meeting with Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase employees to understand their health care experiences. He notes in a letter posted on the new website that Haven will be an “advocate for the patient and an ally to anyone – clinicians, industry leaders, innovators, policymakers and others – who make patient care and cost better.” The website also outlines a number of areas to improve upon the current health system, including the difficulty people have accessing care, navigating the complex system, and affording their medical treatments and prescription drugs.

In January 2018, the three founding companies announced plans to create this independent organization, now called Haven, which is free from profit-making incentives and constraints. Haven’s focus is the 1.2 million employees and families affiliated with Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase across the United States and over time it intends to share what it learns to help others. Dr. Gawande assumed the helm as CEO this past July and assembled a leadership team – including Jack Stoddard as COO, Serkan Kutan as CTO, Dana Safran as Head of Measurement, and others – to move the organization’s work forward.

“The good news is the best results are not the most complicated or expensive. The right care in the right place is often more effective and less costly than what we get today,” explained Dr. Gawande.

As Haven scales up its operations, the organization is focused on recruiting a range of talented individuals, including software engineers, data scientists, and clinicians to join its team. The company is headquartered in Boston and also has an office in New York.

Haven is an independent health care organization founded by Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A, BRK.B) and JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM). The company is focused on creating scalable solutions that will create better health outcomes and patient satisfaction, while also reducing costs.
