About Us:

Hippocratic AI is harnessing generative AI to augment the workforce of healthcare professionals with an infinitely scalable set of generative AI nursing, care coordination, clinical administration, and customer service agents that unlock an unprecedented level of care and service at low cost without sacrificing quality or safety. Its initial product is a staffing marketplace for healthcare where health systems, payors, and others can “hire” generative AI agents that complete low-risk, non-diagnostic, patient-facing healthcare tasks to help solve the massive shortage of healthcare nurses, social workers, and nutritionists in the US and worldwide. The company believes that generative AI will transition us to a world of healthcare abundance for the first time in human history. In leveraging this technology, Hippocratic AI envisions its range of AI agents as the force multiplier of health professionals to raise the standard of care and improve outcomes by significantly increasing patient interaction well beyond what would be possible through human staff alone. The company has partnered with numerous leading innovators across the healthcare ecosystem, has received a total of $120M in funding, and is backed by leading investors, including General Catalyst, Andreessen Horowitz, Premji Invest, and SV Angel.
