Artificial Medical Intelligence, Inc. has been a software developer of health information technology solutions since its incorporation in 2002.
AMI initially targeted the labor intensive medical coding process, with its premier offering, a proprietary Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) solution.
In 2002, our CEO and co-founder, Dr. Andrew Covit, called his brother and co-founder as Stuart Covit up on a Friday freaking out because his transcriptionist was on PTO the following week and he didn’t know how he was going to get his notes into his chart. He didn’t know what to do. So he simply asked, “Is there any other software that I could use that’s out there?”
But what that conversation on that Friday through that Sunday evolved into was wouldn’t it be amazing if we could take a medical record and automatically assign codes to it? So, what began as a transcription conversation quickly turned into a coding conversation. And then that coding conversation over the next few months evolved into a broader conversation about us creating a piece of software that could autonomously take a medical record and assign codes.
That was our vision back in 2002. And in 2003, after we test drove this and created an MVP prototype of the software in about six weeks, we quickly realized that there was a market need for AMI.
