  • Amazon Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase have disclosed the name of their joint healthcare venture

Reporters and healthcare stakeholders can breathe a sigh of relief that they won't have to use "still-unnamed healthcare collaboration" or "Berkmorgazon" as a placeholder for the Boston-based healthcare organization launched by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan Chase past year.

Haven did not say when the changes would be in place for employees.

"We'll start small, learn from the experience of patients, and continue to expand to meet their needs", Gawande said in a statement.

The company said it will remain a non-profit focused exclusively on serving the 1.2 million employees of the company, but eventually hopes to create models for improving care that might apply more broadly to other companies and patients.

The health care company formed by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase & Co. has a name - Haven - and will focus on improving access to primary care, lowering prescription drug prices, and making insurance benefits easier to understand, the joint venture announced Wednesday. "Our work may take many forms, and solutions may take time to develop, but Haven is invested in making health care much better for all of us". The announcement caused shockwaves across the industry.

BNP Paribas de nouveau touchée par un incident technique généralisé
Entré au sein du groupe BNP Paribas en 2001, Bernard Gavgani en est le Global Chief Information Officer depuis octobre 2018. BNP Paribas indique que "le retour à la normale s'effectuera progressivement à partir du début d'après-midi".

"It reflects our goal to be a partner to individuals and families and help them get the care they need, while also working with clinicians and others to make the overall system better for all", the website reads. "We are focused on leveraging the power of data and technology to drive better incentives, a better patient experience and a better system". He assumed the helm in July and assembled a leadership team, including Jack Stoddard as COO and Serkan Kutan as chief technology officer.

The venture's newly launched website reveals few details about the widely anticipated, not-for-profit entity.

"It's very hard for the employees when we talk to them to be able to understand what's covered, to afford their coverage", Stoddard said during testimony. He said as the team studies how these employees are using their health plans, the company is likely to significantly overhaul benefit design.

Haven, with headquarters in Boston and an office in NY, has been the subject of much speculation and some anxiety, including among health insurers.
