“Haven has worked best as an incubator of ideas, a place to experiment, test and learn – and a way to share best practices across our companies,” added Mr. Damon.
Heaven has appointed Dr. Atul Guande, a surgeon at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, who also writes for The New Yorker, as chief executive officer. At the time, Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, acknowledged the high degree of difficulty of Haven’s job.
“Success will require expert knowledge, a novice mind, and a long-term approach,” he said.
But since then, there have been few public indications of what Haven was doing. And in May, as the coronavirus pandemic spread in the country, Dr Guande resigned as CEO and became Chairman of the Board of Directors. Haven said she plans to look for a new CEO, although she has not hired a CEO.
Healthcare and delivery costs have been a major concern for all three companies, but most notably Amazon, which has embarked on Hiring spree unequal. The online retailer, who declined to comment on Haven’s shutdown, was experimenting with his primary care clinics for workers in his warehouse. that He said This summer, it expects to start with 20 clinics in five cities where it has large operations, providing access to care for over 115,000 warehouse workers.
Some of the insights generated by the Haven employees were tested by the three companies, according to one person familiar with the collaboration. For example, JPMorgan has tested telemedicine options – which became more common after the coronavirus pandemic forced the country to shutdown last spring – for employees in Ohio and Arizona, the two states with the most employees outside New York.
The bank has also tested a program that allows employees to assess the cost of an exam or see a doctor before it happens, so they can better prepare for paying their medical bills, the person said.
