Mitre Helps Form New COVID-19 Response Coalition

Mitre has joined other private organizations to create an industrial health care-focused union against the COVID-19 coronavirus disease.

The nonprofit said Monday it helped representatives from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Leavitt Partners and Mayo Clinic facilitate private sector coordination for the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition.

The coalition aims to foster exchanges of information and resources for efforts in response to COVID-19.

Mitre's work to support the coalition includes communication as well as clinical and resource data aggregation.

“Applying real-time data analytics and best practice guidance to a pandemic can flatten the curve of infection and change its course, as seen with Ebola and H1N1,“ said Jay Schnitzer, chief technology and medical officer at Mitre.

Members of the coalition include:

  • Amazon Web Services

  • Arcadia.io

  • athenahealth

  • Buoy Health

  • CommonWell Health Alliance

  • Epic

  • HCA Healthcare

  • Intermountain Healthcare

  • LabCorp

  • Leavitt Partners

  • MassChallenge

  • Mayo Clinic

  • Microsoft

  • Mitre

  • nference

  • Rush University System for Health

  • Salesforce
