K2P picked in DC Inno’s 2020 Inno on Fire Awards
Knowledge to Practice was picked in DC’s 2020 Inno on Fire Awards. “The Bethesda ed-tech startup kicked off 2020 with the intention of helping health care providers more easily stay on top of the industry as it evolves and helps hospitals improve continuity of care. That started with a $3.7 million raise, $2 million of which came from British educational publishing company Pearson’s venture fund — to enable K2P to develop its own curriculum, and tap leaders from top academic centers and medical institutions across the country to contribute to its coursework.
Then coronavirus changed the road map, and founder and CEO Mary Ellen Beliveau led her team on its new path: to design a curriculum to support workers on the front lines of the pandemic, called CurrentMD COVID, built in just two months and at half of the cost of what it took for its core curriculum. To get it out, K2P teamed up with Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina, the South Carolina State Medical Society, and the South Carolina Hospital Association to roll out the program to 25,000 providers across the state in July, a model the company plans to replicate in the 24 U.S. states with Covid-19 cases on the rise. And that’s while locking in two other enterprise deals with large health systems, building an advisory board, hiring new employees, and developing its curriculum for hospitals’ acute, inpatient, and outpatient care teams.”
