While we are using A.I. to help monitor the health of the planet (coral reef ecology), have robots to upgrade recycling, the way Generative A.I. will impact healthcare might be one of the most important
revelations of how large language models can improve society around the world.
Hippocratic Emerges from Stealth
On May 16th, 2023 Hippocratic A.I. emerged from Stealth. This will be a major company one day at the intersection of Generative A.I. and healthcare. I’ve written about hundreds of startups in the A.I. space and I am bullish about this company.
For one, a $50 million seed round is somewhat unusual. The company says its LLM model has passed over 100 healthcare certifications and surpassed GPT-4 and other commercial models’ performance.
Hippocratic — hatched out of General Catalyst — was founded by a group of physicians, hospital administrators, Medicare professionals and AI researchers from organizations including Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Google and Nvidia.
Thank you to Julie Yoo and Justin Larkin, they write:
One study shows that the average hospital has turned over 100.5% of its workforce in the last 5 years!
In this context, when it comes to generative AI, healthcare is an industry that we view as holding the most potential for tangible and measurable impact. Closing the gap on a shortage of millions of healthcare workers in the next several years, while also trying to increase leverage for those already in the workforce, requires much more than just the traditional paths of training or importing more human labor.
