Suki tapped as one of Google Cloud’s first clinical digital assistant partners
Redwood City, Calif. – October 29, 2019 – Today, Suki announced its partnership with Google Cloud. As a partner in the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program, Suki will benefit from access to Google Cloud’s latest artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cloud technology. As one of Google Cloud’s first partners offering a digital clinical assistant, Suki will also use its voice technology to develop and improve language models for physician-focused applications.
“Google’s AI and cloud offerings are already advancing innovative, new clinical solutions across the health care system. As a partner of Google Cloud, we hope to provide even greater value to enterprise health systems by improving clinical workflows, relieving physician burnout, and, most importantly, help more doctors in more specialties remain focused on delivering high-quality care,” said Punit Soni, founder and CEO of Suki.
A true digital assistant, Suki understands intent and individual speaking styles from conversations in clinical practice, adapting to a physician’s commands to become more personalized as they use it. Through its partnership with Google Cloud, Suki will tap into Google’s advanced AI and machine learning technologies, which are central to Suki’s ability to complete administrative tasks such as clinical documentation or information retrieval from an EHR with great accuracy.
“Suki is leveraging the power of Google Cloud to develop a digital assistant that will save doctors time and drive value for health systems. We look forward to working together to improve the ability of doctors to practice medicine and reduce physician burnout.,” said Aashima Gupta, Director, Global Healthcare Solutions, at Google Cloud.
Since launching in May of 2018, Suki has already been adopted across a variety of clinical settings and in dozens of medical specialties. Across its physician base, Suki has lowered the average time per note from more than 13 minutes to just over 3 minutes (76 percent). This is significant, as studies have shown that for every hour of direct clinical facetime with a patient, physicians spend nearly two additional hours on medical paperwork.
