Saykara is working to combat the epidemic of physician burnout that has surfaced from increasingly burdensome documentation requirements and time spent on electronic health record (EHR) data entry. We’ve built the first ambient and autonomous AI-powered assistant for physicians. Named Kara, our solution listens to physician-patient conversations, then interprets and transforms the salient content required for notes, orders, referrals and more, and enters both structured and unstructured data directly to the electronic health record (EHR). Kara is specialty agnostic and being used by physicians all across the country. Data shows that time spent charting is reduced by an average of 70%, after-hours (“pajama time”) charting is completely eliminated, and note quality and completeness is enhanced by 25%.
Saykara was founded in 2015 by Harjinder Sandhu, a serial healthcare technology entrepreneur and former Nuance executive who has stood at the forefront of innovations in speech recognition and machine learning for more than 20 years.
Our team is made up of product visionaries, engineers, machine learning experts and senior executives from giants like GE, Amazon, Microsoft and Google as well as multiple healthcare technology startups, with a proven track record of building and commercializing innovative solutions.
