AI enabled healthtech startup Suki (formerly called Robin), founded by ex-CPO of Flipkart Punit Soni has raised $20 million led by Venrock, First Round, Social Capital, as well as individual Googlers and other angels including Nat Turner of Flatiron Health, and Marc Benioff (CEO of Salesforce).

With the latest funding, the healthtech startup plans to fuel its artificial intelligence-powered, voice-enabled digital assistant for doctors.

With 12 active pilots within internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, and plastic surgery practices in California and Georgia, Suki not only improves the accuracy of the data it captures, over time, it can search and retrieve patient data like imaging files. Additionally, it will be able to distill a doctor’s conversation with a patient into an actionable plan, based on the doctor’s known preferences and clinical practice guidelines.

In its pilot projects, Suki is used five days per week across three different EHR systems – with preliminary results showing Suki cuts the amount of time physicians spend on medical notes up to 60 percent – leading to better notes and happier doctors.
