Uses predictive analytics to remove unconscious bias from the hiring process.
Founded by former White House economic adviser Mike Rosenbaum, Catalyte uses predictive analytics to remove bias from hiring and diversify tech teams. It finds promising talent from unconventional backgrounds using skills assessments rather than resumes. Then, it trains candidates for free and hires them to work with client companies. In May, Catalyte launched RetrainAmerica, a national exchange to connect newly unemployed workers with retraining opportunities. The program builds on Catalyte’s existing reskilling platform for companies retraining workers and bringing on high-aptitude talent from other industries.
Connects health care professionals to employment opportunities.
Jackson Healthcare has become integral to Georgia's pandemic response. In April, the governor of Georgia announced a partnership with Jackson Healthcare to place health care workers in cities across the state. Since then, the company has placed more 2,300 health care workers in over 130 hospitals, overflow care facilities, nursing homes, and mobile field hospitals in Georgia. Because of a newly created model for providing staff, Jackson Healthcare has been able to reduce the lead time it needs to have a physician on-the-ground providing care from 60 days to 10 or fewer days.
Provides health care organizations with cloud-based services, like patient portals and health information exchange, to streamline and improve health systems.
At the start of the pandemic, New York, like many states, was struggling to find the appropriate response strategy. The state hired Cloudticity to build an AWS cloud solution for organizing its response. The resulting Healthcare DataHub automates data ingestion, allowing the New York State Department of Health to view near-real-time data analytics. As a result, the department is now able to accurately report on risks, intelligently manage equipment inventories and ICU bed capacity, and provide up-to-date insight to effectively drive the response.
