“We are at a turning point in healthcare, where it’s now imperative to offer technology that improves physician burnout caused by documentation and administrative burden. With strong support from our investors, Suki is poised to address this issue at an even larger scale and advance high-value, coordinated care through cutting-edge technology that integrates seamlessly into a physician's daily practice,” said Punit Soni, CEO of Suki.

Supporting healthcare

Suki uses natural language processing and machine learning to create clinically accurate medical notes and streamlines administrative tasks, such as retrieving patient information from the electronic health record (EHR) or ICD-10 coding. The platform supports doctors practicing in any clinical setting including cardiology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, paediatrics, and family medicine. Providers can use a wide variety of voice commands to complete tasks, further personalising the voice-enabled experience and streamlining workflows. In the last year, Suki claims to have quadrupled its revenue.

“My first exposure to Suki was observing my doctor using his phone to update his EHR and pharmacy, which compelled me to ask him about what he was using. He was thrilled with Suki as a user, and I knew I had to meet the founder. Doctor burnout is a public health crisis that makes Suki’s cutting-edge AI-powered voice assistant a game-changing solution for doctors and health systems everywhere. We look forward to working closely with Punit and the Suki team and applying March’s operational and industry expertise to accelerate Suki’s growth and product innovation,” said Wes Nichols, partner at March Capital.
