AI‑Powered Digital Employee Built
Specifically For Healthcare
Founded in 2012, Olive builds artificial intelligence and
RPA solutions that empower healthcare organizations to improve efficiency and
patient care while reducing costly administrative errors.
Olive is the only healthcare-specific artificial
intelligence solution sold as a service – that means one annual price and an
all-in-one approach to hiring a digital employee.
Working alongside healthcare employees, Olive is trained to
think cognitively and make complex decisions faster, and more accurately than
human employees. She never misses a day of work. She never makes unprogrammed
mistakes. And every Olive learns collectively, like a network, so that
healthcare organizations never have to solve the same problem twice.
