AdviNOW mentioned in newly released “2023 Hype Cycle for Digital Care Delivery Including Virtual Care” by Gartner

AdviNOW Medical, an emerging leader in the AI/AR healthcare space, is pleased to announce they were included in Gartner’s annual “Hype Cycle for Digital Care Delivery Including Virtual Care” release published in July.

The report focuses on how healthcare providers are adjusting strategy and operations in response to business drivers, such as cost optimization, increased consumer expectations, clinical staff shortages and new funding models. For many, the transformation of clinical care is at the heart of a new strategic plan that is enabling a shift from traditional care venues, to digitally enabled clinical services and business models. This shift comes as new market entrants, such as retailers and digital giants, offer a range of digital-first direct-to-consumer health and wellness services. 

“We’re excited to see the continued adaptation of our platform across hospitals and clinics all across the country and in several parts of the world. The continued issues like staffing shortages, burnout, and patient satisfaction are a universal problem. We’ve seen that AdviNOW’s product has really helped curb these issues in the clinics and hospitals in which it is utilized,” said AdivNOW CEO James Bates.

Founded in 2016, AdviNOW Medical uses artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) to completely automate the medical patient encounter to eliminate administrative burden at the front desk and enable doctors to work at the top of their license. Both the patient and doctor experiences are augmented with AI and AR to nearly eliminate repetitive tasks and allow the doctor to focus only on the decision of diagnosis, treatment and the patient consult. This automation reduces total provider time-per-patient that increases clinic throughput velocity and reduces patient wait times while maintaining the personal nature of the patient-doctor consult. The AI assures each patient has an exact and personal consistency of care to assure the most appropriate care coordination and optimal outcomes which leads to increased patient satisfaction. AdviNOW fundamentally reduces the cost to run existing clinics and is a common platform to drive point of care to the home. This invention promises to revolutionize healthcare for the entire world so every person has access to affordable care.

The vision is to develop into a  centre of excellence for highly specialized services in medicine, medical training, and research. We share the President of Tanzania Samia Hassan’s goal to advance healthcare in Tanzania. “His [Samia Hassan] massive investment in Tanzania’s health sector is aimed at enhancing availability of specialized services and strengthening the country’s position as a healthcare hub for medical tourism”.

AdviNOW Medical recognized as a Sample Vendor in the 2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Digital Care Delivery Including Virtual Care

AdviNOW MEdical | Automating Helathcare with AI | Logo

Phoenix, AZ July 28, 2022 – AdviNOW Medical, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence driven Digital Clinical Encounter solutions, announced that it has been identified as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Digital Care Delivery Including Virtual Care, 2022. AdviNOW Medical was named in the Digital Clinical Encounters category.” [1]


AdviNOW Medical removes friction points between the patient, clinic, payer and

provider. Artificial intelligence (AI) scribing is used to reduce the administrative burden of the provider and free them from the burdens of data collection and EHR documentation. The AdviNOW System includes the Digital Front Door, Provider Scribe,

Coding Assist, Remote Patient Monitoring and Follow-up. The common platform is used for all types of visits (in-person or virtually by video or async messaging) with the patient.


“AdviNOW is the only company that eliminates the administrative burden of the encounter clinically.  We are delighted that Gartner recognized AdviNOW Medical as a Sample Vendor in this Hype Cycle for Digital Care Delivery Including Virtual Care,” said James Bates, Chief Executive Office and Founder of AdviNOW Medical. “We believe this is a testament to our ability to be the first automated healthcare platform with a complete patient-provider end to end solution.”


According to Gartner, “Digital clinical encounters are semiautomated patient interactions that include the use of clinical protocols, algorithms, and artificial intelligence (AI) to facilitate history taking, triage, diagnosis, prescribing and documentation. The encounter leverages the latest evidence-based clinical knowledge to reduce clinicians’ direct involvement prior to their review of the captured and analyzed content for clinical oversight and action.”

Clinics that use AdviNOW nearly double patient throughput while increasing patient satisfaction and provider burnout declines. We are excited to continue to lead the vision of the healthcare revolution.


In addition, Gartner states that “Epidemiological factors (such as an aging population and increasing burden of chronic disease), coupled with clinician shortages and burnout, have made access to primary and specialist care a major challenge currently facing the healthcare industry. Digital clinical encounters help address these issues by improving clinician efficiency through the automation of certain steps in the care delivery process.”
