For doctors that are exhausted from long hours typing up patient medical records, it could be game-changing, says Punit Soni, founder and CEO of Suki AI, a virtual assistant app for clinicians. The startup just raised a $20 million Series B round from Flare Capital Partners, First Round Capital, and Venrock, doubling its total funding to $40 million since its 2017 launch. The premise of Suki AI is simple: It's Alexa for doctors. Similar to how people can order Amazon's voice-enabled digital assistant to set a reminder or tell them their schedule, doctors can use Suki to take notes during patient appointments and those notes will automatically fill out electronic health records (EHRs). That's increasingly important as doctors spend more time logging data and less face time with patients.
