Saykara Raises $5M from NYP and Other Leading Investors

SEATTLE, Sept. 13, 2018 - Saykara, the leading voice and AI-powered virtual assistant for physicians, announced today an investment of $5 million led by SpringRock Ventures, a venture fund focused on the convergence of health care and technology. Other investors include NewYork-Presbyterian HospitalElevate Innovation Partners (EIP), and existing investor Madrona Venture Group.

Saykara has developed a voice-based solution to address the documentation burden faced by clinicians. By some measures, physicians spend an average of two hours in front of a computer for every one hour of patient time. As a result, it's a leading cause of physician dissatisfaction and burnout – and one of the most pressing problems facing the healthcare industry today
