About Augmedix

Augmedix simplifies how physicians use EHRs by providing a technology-enabled documentation service for health systems and doctors. We are on a mission to re-humanize the clinician-patient relationship, and address the largest pain-point in the US healthcare system – the burden of documentation. The Augmedix service saves clinicians an average of 15 hours per week, enabling them to see more patients and spend more time with their existing patients. What we see as a result is increased provider satisfaction, improved patient experience, higher quality patient notes, and timely note completion. We are partnered with several national health systems, with happy users from Alaska to Florida, serving tens of thousands of patients per month.

Augmedix leadership

Manny Krakaris, CEO

Manny has been a serial company-builder in Silicon Valley for more than a decade. He has had several recent startup experiences as CEO, CFO and COO. Most recently, Manny was CEO of Streetline. Prior to entering the world of Silicon Valley, Manny worked in banking at BNP Paribas, where he rose to Group Vice President within the bank’s leveraged finance organization. He received an MBA from the University of California – Berkeley and completed his undergraduate studies at McGill University.

When Manny isn’t scaling startups, you can find him at the local ice rink playing hockey, or back in Canada, his childhood home, tearing up the slopes.

Ian Shakil, Founding Chairman

Ian was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up in Broward County, Florida. That said, he spent much of his childhood on airplane en route to Bangladesh (Ian is ½ Bangladeshi).

He has always been passionate about the intersection of science, engineering, and medicine, which drew him to study Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. After graduating in 2006, he worked at Edwards Lifesciences, a leading medical device company, in various engineering, operations, and marketing roles. He left industry to get his MBA at Stanford University. After graduating in the spring of 2012, he briefly worked at MC10, a pioneering wearable computing startup.

In the summer of 2012, Ian had the rare opportunity to try an un-released beta of Google Glass (before the world came to know of its existence). He was inspired by the potential he saw for IoT devices + tech-enabled services in healthcare, and dropped everything to found Augmedix with a mission to re-humanize the doctor-patient interaction.

Ian describes himself as an improv nerd, a foodie, and a regular Burner. He currently lives in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Augmedix is re-humanizing health care.
