SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – March 18, 2021 – Augmedix, Inc. (OTC Pink: AUGX), a leading provider of remote medical documentation and live clinical support, today announced preliminary unaudited financial and operational results for the fourth quarter and full year 2020.
Augmedix converts natural clinician-patient conversation into medical documentation and provides live support, including referrals, orders, and reminders. The company’s vision is to automate as much of the medical note creation process as possible by applying an approach referred to as “intelligence amplification.” Augmedix has generated over four million medical notes since it began offering its service.

- Preliminary fourth quarter dollar-based net revenue retention was 108% for our Health Enterprise customers compared to 113% in the third quarter of 2020

Manny Krakaris, Chief Executive Officer of Augmedix, stated, “Our strong fourth quarter and 2020 results exemplify both the momentum we are building in remote clinical documentation and our disciplined execution. Over the past year, Augmedix has continued to expand its recurring revenue stream to address the $6 billion clinical documentation market. Moreover, I expect growth in 2021 to be even more robust than in the prior year as healthcare utilization normalizes. I’m very proud of the Augmedix team, and I am looking forward to the next chapter of our growth as a publicly-traded company.”
The Company’s fourth quarter and full year 2020 financial results are preliminary and are subject to the completion of the Company’s 2020 accounting and financial close and reporting process. Complete fourth quarter and full year 2020 financial results will be announced in late March.
Definition of Key Metrics
Dollar-Based Net Revenue Retention: We define a “Health Enterprise” as a company or network of doctors that has at least 50 clinicians currently employed or affiliated that could utilize our services. Dollar-based net revenue retention is determined as the revenue from Health Enterprises as of twelve months prior to such period end as compared to revenue from these same Health Enterprises as of the current period end, or current period revenue. Current period revenue includes any expansion or new products and is net of contraction or churn over the trailing twelve months but excludes revenue from new Health Enterprises in the current period. We believe growth in dollar-based net revenue retention is a key indicator of the performance of our business as it demonstrates our ability to increase revenue across our existing customer base through expansion of users and products, as well as our ability to retain existing customers.
Augmedix converts natural clinician-patient conversation into medical documentation and provides live support, including referrals, orders, and reminders, so clinicians can focus on what matters most: patient care.
