Violet, the health equity platform, announced today that the company is proudly finishing the 2022 fiscal year with 25 partnerships, just six months after announcing and securing its seed round. The current number of partnerships is an increase of 225% over last year, and, of note, the new partnerships include Thirty Madison, Headway, Octave, Galileo, TimelyMD, Arise, Parsley Health, Eden Health, Ontrak, Nox Health, and more. In 2023, all of the partnering companies will continue to onboard additional clinicians, care coaches, and other providers onto Violet’s continuing education platform, to better care for millions of diverse patients.
“Violet’s portfolio of customers is diverse, representing many segments of the health care industry. What do they all have in common? These organizations choose Violet to improve their providers’ inclusive care delivery, and that is invaluable,” said Gaurang Choksi, Violet’s founder and CEO. “We’re proud to support these leading health care organizations on their mission to offer better care for diverse patients.”
Through these partnerships, Violet will onboard thousands of clinicians from Thirty Madison, Headway, Octave, Galileo, TimelyMD, Arise, Parsley Health, Eden Health, and Nox Health to credential and upskill cultural competence for improved care of 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 care for patients,” said Neil Parikh, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Thirty Madison. “Health care transformation should be inclusive, focusing on the needs of individual patients to improve outcomes—a core value we share with Violet.”
By 2045, over half of Americans will be diverse in race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and more. Yet, health care is failing these Americans. Racial disparities alone have led to 3.5M life years lost in just 2020. Violet’s team—a group of mission-driven queer, BIPOC, and Disabled individuals—believes the solution is at the clinician level, thereby improving health outcomes and saving almost $100B in excess care spend.
Since launching in 2020, Violet offers a continuing education platform that upskills and credentials clinicians in cultural competence for better patient outcomes. Violet uses data to measure pre-existing cultural competence and improves inclusivity with tailored upskilling journeys. And, as providers are excelling, Violet offers real-time skilling data back to their partners to power identity-centered care matching. Violet’s customers are continuing to prove the impact of inclusive care with improved patient retention rates and health outcomes.
