Recognized for Innovation in Digital Tools
REDWOOD CITY, CA (October 2, 2019) —Suki, a digital assistant for doctors, today was named to CB Insights’ inaugural Digital Health 150 ranking. The list showcases the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world and CB Insights revealed the final list at Future of Health, a gathering of top executives across some of the largest healthcare institutions, startups, and investment firms.
“We’re proud to be recognized for our leadership in bringing digital assistants to physicians nationwide,” said Punit Soni, Suki CEO. “It’s an honor to be recognized among such an incredible group of health care innovators.”
Suki uses AI and natural language processing to complete administrative tasks, such as clinical documentation or information retrieval from an EHR, with 100 percent accuracy. As a true digital assistant, Suki gets smarter with use by understanding how a physician speaks and learning clinical and administrative preferences unique to each provider and practice.
In just over a year since launch, Suki has already been adopted across a variety of clinical settings and in dozens of medical specialties. Studies show that across its physician base, Suki has lowered the average time per note from more than 70 percent.
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from hundreds of applications based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
“From pharmaceuticals to patient care, technology is rapidly changing healthcare, and The Digital Health 150 showcases the 150 best startups spearheading innovation and change in the sector,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “It's a privilege to use CB Insights' data to identify and shine a light on these companies, and we look forward to tracking their success in 2019 and beyond."
