The Voicebot Podcast

Aug 2, 2020

Harjinder Sandhu founded Saykara in 2015 but his journey into healthcare and voice began in 2000 when he founded Medremote which used speech recognition and machine learning to automate physician notes transcription for medical documentation. That company was eventually acquired by Nuance in 2006 and Sandhu stayed on as the healthcare group CTO until 2011. He then was a co-founder of a patient engagement platform called Twistle which is still operating today.
But, the draw of voice technology advances led him to Saykara where he and his team are building a voice assistant for doctors and other clinicians. It's a great conversation about specialty assistants, the importance of workflow in healthcare, and the tech stack required to serve this highly demanding user base. 
Sandhu earned a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto and was a professor of computer science at York University before becoming a startup founder.
