Augnito – ‘Made in India’ Voice-Based AI for Medical Documentation


Obstacles in the adoption of healthcare digitization can be overcome by utilizing voice-based artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Augnito is one such product that provides an advanced AI-based speech-to-text solution that enables digital scribing. Augnito stands for ‘augmented cognition’ and provides an enhanced tool for medical transcription. With Augnito, doctors can keep talking while software automatically converts this speech to text in real-time. This serves to overcome the barriers limiting EMR implementation in healthcare practices. Augnito is India’s first medical speech recognition AI product bootstrapped by Scribe tech, a 22-year-old established healthcare company that has been working with the National Healthcare System (NHS), UK for the past two decades.

Augnito has also been integrated into Wellbeing’s Cris, the UK’s most widely used Radiology Information System (RIS), which will provide significant benefits to radiologists, NHS Trusts, clinicians, and patients.

A result of intense research and development efforts by a team of speech scientists, academicians, and consultants, it is the only product in the Indian market to have an extremely powerful and advanced engine. With Augnito, doctors can keep talking while the software automatically converts this speech to text in real-time.
