Eviset Selected by Amazon Web Services (AWS) Health Equity Program
Eviset to Receive IT Credits and Technical Expertise from AWS to Address Health Equity with a Data-Driven B2B Marketplace for Social Care Providers
NEWARK, NJ, USA, Oct. 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eviset today announced that it has been selected for the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Health Equity Initiative, a commitment from $40 million over three years, supporting organizations that develop solutions to advance health equity. Eviset is a technology start-up that is developing a data-driven B2B marketplace for social care providers to optimize matching community-based organizations (CBOs) with health sector funding and contracting opportunities.
Through this initiative, AWS is offering AWS Credits and customized technical expertise to select organizations around the world who want to use AWS services to improve health outcomes and health equity in any of the following areas: 1) increase access to health services for underserved communities; 2) addressing the social determinants of health; 3) leveraging data to promote more equitable and inclusive systems of care; and 4) promote equity in diagnosis and screening.
“We are thrilled to be selected for the AWS Health Equity Initiative,” said Julie Lawrence, CEO and Co-Founder of Eviset, “Inclusion in this important program will accelerate our efforts to improve the capacity of local social care providers. to better serve their communities.”
AWS support will enable Eviset to leverage its B2B social care marketplace infrastructure to help address health disparities for children impacted by intergenerational poverty. Eviset aims to accomplish this by increasing the visibility of social care providers with deep histories and roots in underserved communities, and resources that will strengthen existing community infrastructure.
“AWS believes that individual health outcomes should not be dependent on socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or neighborhood,” said Maggie Carter, Global Lead, Social Impact at AWS. “Cloud technology can help address global health inequities that have been magnified by the pandemic. Through the AWS Health Equity Initiative, we look forward to helping Eviset and other organizations around the world use the power of cloud computing to advance health equity and improve health outcomes.
Eviset will launch its social care marketplace infrastructure in Philadelphia, which has over 6,000 registered CBOs providing social care services. Working with these community organizations, Eviset will collect and analyze data that provides in-depth insights into community members served, their experience and outcomes, and generates predictive signals of short- and long-term benefits and outcomes. This inaugural effort will, for the first time, bring all community organizations in Philadelphia online, making them instantly available to contract with health plans and health systems.
Lawrence observes that breaking the cycle of poverty requires addressing ingrained, system-wide barriers to accessing basic needs of food, stable housing, and transportation, as well as development. practical skills in life. Successful community initiatives have shown that efforts to break the cycle of poverty yield positive results when social care providers share their lived experience, cultural background and context with members of the community they serve. Historically, however, many of these organizations have been underrepresented when funding and contracting opportunities arise. While the number of CBOs with dedicated business development staff is increasing, some of the smallest but most influential CBOs today lack this urgently needed resource.
“There is a huge benefit to having local organizations leading change within their own communities. Eviset leverages technology to help them overcome the challenge of visibility – how to secure a ‘seat at the table’ where contracts and funding are awarded – and use data to show their impact,” Lawrence concluded.
