Saykara, a Seattle, WA-based voice and AI-powered virtual assistant for physicians, raised $5m in funding.
The round was led by SpringRock Ventures, with participation from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Elevate Innovation Partners (EIP), and existing investor Madrona Venture Group. In conjunction with the funding, Kirsten Morbeck, Managing Director of SpringRock will join Saykara’s Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its development efforts.
Founded in 2015 by Harjinder Sandhu, a former Nuance executive and machine learning veteran, Saykara has developed a voice-based solution for clinicians to interact with the electronic medical record (EMR) system through a voice- and AI-powered mobile application. The company is commercially available today and is live at several mid-size and large healthcare systems nationwide.
