Ambience Healthcare, the most comprehensive AI operating system for healthcare organizations, has announced a $70M Series B raise co-led by Kleiner Perkins and OpenAI Startup Fund. The raise also includes existing investors Andreessen Horowitz and Optum Ventures.

“Healthcare is one of AI’s most promising opportunities to create an outsized positive impact on the world. Ambience Healthcare has built an incredible team to focus on providing a complete ecosystem of products that seamlessly fit into the workflow of practitioners, pushing both AI and medicine forward,” said Brad Lightcap, COO of OpenAI and manager of the OpenAI Startup Fund.

This announcement comes on the heels of Ambience’s rapidly accelerating commercial progress, including deployments with major healthcare organizations such as UCSF, Memorial Hermann Health System, John Muir Health, The Oncology Institute, GI Alliance, Midi Health, and Eventus WholeHealth.

A key driver of Ambience’s growth has been the ability to help health systems and large provider groups achieve clear financial ROI as a result of rapid clinician adoption, best-in-class performance, and seamless integrations with leading electronic medical records (EMRs), including Epic, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, Athenahealth, Elation, and AdvancedMD.

Working in concert as part of a collective ecosystem, these applications are helping health systems reduce documentation time by an average of 78%, improve coding integrity, and achieve at least a 5X return on investment.

“To truly move the needle on quality, cost, and access, we needed a comprehensive platform that covered every single clinical specialty at each touchpoint. From the very first appointment a patient has with one of our clinicians, all the way to the back office operations of how we code and bill. Our team rigorously evaluated and pressure-tested the major solutions on the market. Ambience was the clear choice,” said Dr. Priti Patel, Chief Medical Information Officer at John Muir Health.
