IKS Health, a healthcare Provider Enablement Platform, and Abridge, a Generative AI for Healthcare Platform, announced an expansive partnership to build and deploy AI-based technology that can reduce the administrative burden that is currently driving provider burnout and staffing shortages. Over the coming months, IKS will leverage Abridge’s generative AI to realize efficiencies in their clinical documentation services. In turn, IKS will accelerate the development of Abridge’s core AI technologies by contributing feedback from their large workforce of medical professionals. This alignment between both parties, empowered by IKS’ strategic investment in Abridge, advances both company’s respective missions to scale their impact across the healthcare system at a critical time when costs and clinician burnout are at unprecedented levels. Both teams are aligned in their journey to eliminate administrative work and are driven by the rising rates of burnout among clinicians that is leading many to exit the healthcare workforce. According to a paper recently published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, physicians would require more than 27 hours a day to deliver all of the clinical and administrative work asked of them.

Our goal is to assist clinicians by taking away and assisting them with the administrative chores and enable them to focus on their core value of building trusted relationships with their patients in order to drive better clinical outcomes,” said Sachin K. Gupta, founder & CEO of IKS. “Our partnership with Abridge will transform how generative AI will be leveraged in a pragmatic, provider-ready solution that enables them to deliver better, safer and more efficient care at scale." According to Zack Lipton, Abridge’s Chief Scientific Officer, “While the possibilities for generative AI to revolutionize health care are boundless, this engine is fueled by feedback loops, and the most important data in healthcare doesn’t live on the open web.” Shiv Rao, CEO of Abridge said, “Abridge has developed a first-of-its-kind generative AI solution for healthcare. This partnership will improve all of our core technologies and also unlock opportunities to improve downstream care delivery workflows in ways not previously imagined.” IKS and Abridge are committed to Responsible AI principles and, most critically, the highest healthcare industry standards for data privacy and security.
