AI Radiology Startup Agamon Raises $3M to Transform Clinical Text into Data
Healthcare startup Agamon announced on Monday that it raised $3 million in a seed round led by UK investment firm MMC Ventures, with participation from InHealth Ventures, Seedcamp, and Bayer G4A.
Founded in 2018 by Michal Meiri, CEO, and Omri Sivan, CTO, Agamon says it helps health systems make sense of their unstructured clinical data. Agamon’s AI software trains hospital computers to “read” a doctor’s unique language, a long-standing barrier for healthcare advancements. Using natural language processing (NLP) to make sense of the text in patient records, the system then puts the text summaries into a structured database format.
“Agamon has built advanced AI and NLP (natural language processing) that assess the significance of findings extracted from unstructured medical text, starting with radiology reports. This helps us make sure no important clinical recommendation ever falls through the cracks, and will assist with automating timely review of large report volumes”, says Dr. Danie Siegal, vice chair of radiology at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan.
