The healthcare sector, a global cornerstone, has long grappled with the weight of administrative challenges that often lead to practitioner burnout. With the scales tipped heavily towards administrative tasks, consuming a staggering six hours of a healthcare professional's day, the crucial patient interaction time dwindles to a mere three hours. In a world where quality care is paramount, Copenhagen-based Corti steps in as the beacon of change. This innovative AI-driven platform is poised to revolutionize healthcare by providing much-needed assistance to medical practitioners, reducing administrative burdens, and ensuring more efficient and precise patient interactions. In a significant milestone, Corti has secured $60 million in a Series B funding round, co-led by Prosus Ventures and Atomico, with participation from existing investors.
