Boston, MA - January 17, 2018
Coverys, a leading medical professional liability insurance provider, announced today the investment in two separate organizations, Knowledge Diffusion, Inc. (Osmosis) and Pack Health, LLC (Pack Health). Both organizations provide innovative resources that help improve patient outcomes and support provider performance.
Osmosis is a medical and health education technology company with headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland. It has an audience of more than 500,000 current and future clinicians between its advanced learning platform (www.osmosis.org) and popular YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/osmosis). Osmosis leverages its video learning platform to create and disseminate co-branded video content that is visually appealing, clear, and concise. It also has a strong partnership with Wikipedia, which features Osmosis content on health and medicine articles. To date, Osmosis has focused on medical students but is quickly gaining traction with a number of other critical healthcare provider segments including nursing, physician assistants, pharmacy, dentistry, and others.
Pack Health, headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, has become an industry leader in chronic care management in partnership with payers, providers, employers, professional associations, and medical education organizations. Pack Health’s digital coaching platform provides a technology-driven, human-centric engagement to patients in over 20 chronic conditions. It supports patients’ access to care and also helps them develop self-management skills which are designed to improve their own well-being.
“Coverys constantly looks for innovative ways to support providers to deliver quality healthcare, improve patient outcomes, and reduce medical professional liability claims,” said Gregg L. Hanson, CEO and president of Coverys. “These investments further these goals—by educating early clinician learners and working directly with patients struggling to cope with chronic disease, both of which can reduce liability claims.”
With the investments in Osmosis and Pack Health, Coverys continues to execute on its vertical strategy to discover solutions that complement and align with its core business of offering medical professional liability insurance protection to healthcare providers, hospitals, and health systems across the nation.
