Partnership Takes an Innovative Approach to Address Physician Well-Being
SAN FRANCISCO (August 8, 2022) — Augmedix, a leading provider of automated medical documentation solutions, announces an innovative, data-driven partnership with Adventist Health, a nonprofit integrated health system serving more than 80 communities within the western U.S. and Hawaii.
Augmedix has entered into an agreement with Adventist Health as part of a scalable strategy to support physicians burdened by administrative tasks. The partnership provides over-burdened physicians with automated medical documentation and live clinical services, alleviating a portion of the physicians’ workload with cutting-edge AI technology.
“We deeply appreciate the innovative approach that Adventist Health is taking to proactively address physician burnout,” said Manny Krakaris, chief executive officer at Augmedix. “We take pride in offering medical documentation automation and related support that simultaneously enhance providers productivity and job satisfaction.”
Leveraging a data-driven approach, Augmedix identified physicians who spend a disproportionate amount of time working in the EHR and who would most benefit from its solutions. This is an effort to promote time savings, increase physician well-being, and drive productivity.
“It is our mission to be a force for good. We recognize without our physicians practicing at the top of their game, there is no way to deliver on that promise,” said Adrian Serna, President of Physician Services at Adventist Health. “This data-driven approach to identify at-risk physicians in partnership with Augmedix is an important strategy to address well-being.”
Augmedix and Adventist Health began their pilot program in April 2019. Based upon measurable increases in physician productivity and satisfaction, the program has successfully grown to include eight specialties across 14 markets in California, Oregon and Hawaii.
