Tackling the Pandemic Together

In the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, several companies in the HEP portfolio have stepped up in remarkable ways to help others—patients, caregivers and hospitals—navigate these uncertain times. “Tackling the Pandemic Together” is an effort to recognize the exceptional efforts of employees in our portfolio in responding to this crisis. We have asked the CEOs of our portfolio companies to nominate one employee for their significant contributions to the company’s COVID-19 solution. We will feature these employees in a series of vignettes. In association with each nomination, HEP will be making a charitable contribution to a healthcare organization of that employee’s choice. We’re all in this together.

Using the Twistle Health Journey Model, I created a COVID-19 Health Journey Map that has been useful in helping Twistle staff and customers understand the role that Twistle can play in force multiplying our overburdened healthcare system.
–William DePaso, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Twistle

I facilitated the discussion that led to our COVID-19 clinical protocol, and led training for our Nurse Practitioner team as they prepared to consult with patients about symptoms of and exposure to the virus.
–Amanda Hall, Director of Clinical Services, Catapult Health
