Nashville Post: Startup aims AI at clinician scheduling
A new venture backed by local tech veterans and developed with help from one of the region’s largest physician groups is applying an artificial intelligence approach to make better use of doctors’ and nurses’ time.
Polaris Health has been launched out of SwitchPoint Ventures, the firm launched two years ago by Ray Guzman, Damian Mingle and Nolan Rhem, alums of WPC Healthcare and several successor companies. The company’s technology uses algorithms to predict when various providers will be in demand and then lays out the best possible schedules for them. Its backers say it can be applied to any practice area or specialty.
