NEW YORK, New York, Dec. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Violet, a first-of-its-kind healthcare equity platform, announced today that the company is proudly ending fiscal 2022 with 25 partnerships, just six months after announcing and securing its seed round. The current number of partnerships is a 225% increase over last year, and notable new partnerships include Thirty Madison, Headway, Octave, Galileo, TimelyMD, Arise, Parsley Health, Eden Health, Ontrak, Nox Health and more. In 2023, all partner companies will continue to include additional clinicians, care educators and other providers on Violet’s continuing education platform to better care for millions of different patients.
“Violet’s client portfolio is diverse, representing many segments of the healthcare industry. What do they all have in common? These organizations choose Violet to improve the delivery of inclusive care to their providers, and it is invaluable,” said Gaurang Choksi, founder and CEO of Violet. “We are proud to support these leading healthcare organizations in their mission to offer better care to diverse patients.”
Through these partnerships, Violet will engage thousands of clinicians from Thirty Madison, Headway, Octave, Galileo, TimelyMD, Arise, Parsley Health, Eden Health, and Nox Health to certify and increase cultural competency for improved care for BIPOC, LGBQ, and TGNC patients.
“Thirty Madison is committed to transforming specialty care across all of our brands, and there is no other platform like Violet to help us deliver culturally competent patient care,” said Neil Parikh, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Thirty Madison. “Healthcare transformation must be inclusive, focusing on the needs of individual patients to improve outcomes – a core value we share with Violet.”
By 2045, more than half of Americans will be diverse in terms of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and more. Yet health care is failing these Americans. Racial disparities alone resulted in the loss of 3.5 million years of life in 2020 alone. Violet’s team—a group of purposeful queer, BIPOC, and disabled people—believes the solution is at the clinician level, thereby improving health outcomes and save nearly $100 billion in excessive care spending.
Since launching in 2020, Violet has offered a continuing education platform that enhances clinicians’ skills and credentials in cultural competency for better patient outcomes. Violet uses data to measure existing cultural competency and improves inclusion with personalized upskilling journeys. And as providers outperform, Violet offers real-time skills data back to its partners to help match identity-driven care. Violet’s clients continue to demonstrate the impact of inclusive care with improved patient retention rates and health outcomes.
