NEW YORK, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Simply Speak (https://simplyspeak.com), the first conversational-AI platform built to help physicians using telemedicine to document their encounters with patients, is excited to announce a $1.1 million in seed funding to expand its growth during COVID-19.
Simply Speak enables physicians who are using telemedicine to document their interaction with patients while maintaining eye-contact. The platform leverages AI to extract meaningful medical data from the physician-patient conversation, and automatically place it back into the EMR.
The company has been bootstrapped since its inception. With the outburst of COVID-19, the company expanded to support physicians who are using telehealth and raised funding to scale its operations.
"The big advantage that telehealth has over a regular phone call is the ability to maintain eye-contact with the patient," said Moti Tomashin, CEO and Co-Founder. "The absurd is that physicians now look away from the screen in order to take notes, losing the human connection that is so essential for the diagnostic process". Simply Speak's vision is to restore humanity to the practice of medicine by leveraging Conversational-AI - making physicians happier and creating more meaningful relationships between physicians and their patients.
Simply Speak Executive team includes seasoned leaders with global healthcare and AI experience: 33-year-old Tomashin was a successful healthcare attorney and an alumnus of an elite Israeli Army Unit; Yaron Aronsohn, CTO and Co-Founder, Ex. Chief Architect at Cyvera (purchased by Palo Alto Networks), and Glenn Loomis, MD, Chief Medical Officer and the company's first investor, Ex. President and CMO at HealthQuest health system.
Advisory Board member Dr. Michael Ghalchi, Owner of Manhattan Cardiovascular Associates, added, "Simply Speak saves our physicians time, helps them communicate with their patients better, and ultimately improves both patients and physician satisfaction in a telemedicine setting."
Simply Speak works by integrating with a provider's EMR. Physicians can launch the Simply Speak application straight from the EMR, and review their notes at the end of the visit on the patient's file on EMR. Physicians are used to counting clicks on their EMR; Simply Speak requires only three clicks of a button from beginning to end. Simple integration, plug & play documentation, and ease of use help physicians to save time, improve their well-being, and build better relationships with their patients.
