Punit Soni’s LinkedIn profile includes Intel, Google, and Motorola. But Soni tells the Breaking Health podcast that he believes the “largest, most interesting” tech company will be in health care. Can Suki be that company? Soni sees an enormous opportunity to help physicians be physicians by replacing keyboards with AI-enabled digital assistants that can record electronic health record (HER) documentation. Can this digital assistant improve patient care and reduce physician burnout by getting docs away from data entry and back to doctoring? “We want the doctors to be the bosses of their own lives,” Soni says. “They need to rediscover the joy of practicing medicine.” Suki already is an interesting company to watch.
