On December 3rd, 2020 DeepScribe was named the winner of the Allscripts Developer Challenge, calling for startups to reimagine care delivery. 2020 marks 200 years since the trailblazing social reformer and nurse Florence Nightingale was born, and the World Health Organization has named this year the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. With her legacy in mind, MATTER, Allscripts, Microsoft and the ARC Innovation Center at Sheba Medical Center hosted a virtual pitch competition which challenged startups to share their solutions that address the following question: How might we use technology and innovative solutions to create the EHR of the future to reduce the burden on nurses?

DeepScribe’s AI-based solution to clinical documentation rose above 250 competitors to be selected as one of the top eight companies to move forward to the final round. Pitching to a panel featuring many distinguished names within the medical community, Co-Founder and COO Matthew Ko took the virtual stage to expand on DeepScribe’s mission of bringing the joy back to medicine. Touching on some of the most pressing issues plaguing medical practitioners today, Ko explained how healthcare workers spend over a third of their day on documentation alone, pulling them away from patient care and largely contributing to the industry’s high burnout rate. His customer-centric presentation demonstrated DeepScribe’s ability to address this issue by seamlessly integrating cutting-edge technology into the medical practice, to allow clinicians to fully focus on patient care while their AI Scribe handles their documentation. 

Ko’s presentation not only impressed the panel of judges, but was also a crowd favorite, winning first prize overall and the audience choice award. This win allows DeepScribe access to the Allscripts Developer Program and the Allscripts-ARC Innovation Center at Sheba Medical Center's private sandbox, both valuable resources as the company continues to expand their AI Scribe technology. Additionally DeepScribe will be provided the opportunity to pitch their solution to experts from ARC Innovation Center at Sheba Medical Center’s network, such as Mayo Clinic, Mount Sinai, Ottawa General Hospital and Henry Ford. 

As new technologies like Artificial Intelligence become available to the medical community DeepScribe believes their application should first and foremost benefit those who have devoted their lives to caring for others. We would like to thank MATTER, Allscripts, Microsoft and the ARC Innovation Center at Sheba Medical Center for the opportunity to share our solution, as well as all judges and the audience for believing in our mission.
