ORLANDO, Fla., March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS CONFERENCE, Booth #7273-27 - Saykara, delivering healthcare's first ambient AI virtual assistant, has chosen Microsoft Azure to power Kara and will be showcasing the latest enhancements during the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference to be held March 9-13, in Orlando.
"Saykara believes that conversational AI within the exam room can significantly reduce physician burnout and improve job satisfaction by unburdening documentation and workflow challenges," said Harjinder Sandhu, CEO, Saykara. "For conversational AI to work effectively, it needs to run in a secure, scalable cloud-based architecture. We selected Microsoft Azure to reliably deliver seamless solutions into physician exam rooms and streamline processes."
Physicians are often forced to choose between typing into a computer during patient exams, potentially eroding doctor-to-patient interaction and perceived service levels, or spending hours at night dictating or entering information and forfeiting personal downtime. This 'off hours' documentation burden is a leading cause of physician dissatisfaction and burnout as it they try to maintain a quality of life and work-life balance.
Saykara seamlessly supports physicians through all aspects of the patient encounter, allowing them to walk in an exam room and have Kara ambiently transform the dialogue with the patient into a note ready for physician signoff. With Kara, the company's ambient AI virtual assistant, physicians can expect a 70% reduction in overall documentation time and zero after hours charting. During the conference, Saykara will be demonstrating the latest version of its ambient AI virtual assistant and offering use cases of how it is transforming exam rooms.
