"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, 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. More information about Haven is available at
