At KenSci, we obsess over a very simple problem – How can we make healthcare better using data. To address this, we’ve built a team of some of the best doctors, developers and data scientists who are looking at new ways to reshape the landscape of healthcare. We’re passionate, inquisitive and committed to the cause. It’s what brings us all together as a scientifically curious community we like to call- KenScientists.
A professor and his team of students at UW begin exploring the impact of AI and ML on predicting disease management risk. Little did they realize the impact it would have on healthcare providers and payors across the globe. The success of their findings gave them the platform to explore their research in the real-world
In 2016, a triad introduced the group to the world. An ex-Microsoft GM, a few health systems that initially trusted the researchers and Microsoft who backed the idea shone light on the group. Soon, KenSci was born. Our name is derived from the words Ken, meaning Knowledge and Sci, from Data Science
KenSci began attracting the attention of investors across the globe. More people were alogned to our misssion to save lives using data, and we began to gradually see people buy into our vision. This attracted out first round of funding led by Ignition Partners.
From a modest team of 14, KenSci grew to a a team size of over 60. We were now present across three continents and four countries. People joined us from the likes of Microsoft, Facebook and Google, to build one of the most impactful products of their life.
2018 was the year of remarkable growth and achievements. KenSci won itself 6 awards, was featured twice on television, got invited to three galas and made new friends with other companies in the healthcare ecosystem. We put our swag goggles on and the galore never stopped.
KenSci’s academic prowess began attracting the attention of the academic community. We were invited to speak at leading forums, tradeshows, expos and conferences. We also authored over 50 peer reviewed papers that were showcased around the globe.
With a great team comes a great company. And we wanted to make every one of our KenScientists feel truly as important as they were. This brought it a recognition that we least expected. KenSci was ranked amoung the Best Employers in the state of Washington for our culture and opportunities. It was time for celebration.
Backed by our existing investors and along with a few new ones, KenSci raised a Series B round of funding in 2019. This gave us the opportunity to set our footprint in UK and New Zealand while growing our team to over 80 members. It also meant we were now partying on a boat.
For the second time in a row, KenSci wins the Best use of AI and ML in Healthcare along with Microsoft Partner of the year finalist in 2019. We were able to secure customers across time-zones and are getting one step closer to making “Better Healthcare for Everyone” a reality.
The last quarter of 2019 reinforced KenSci's leadership position in the market. Three analyst reports, CBInsights, KLAS and Gartner placed KenSci in high standing among healthcare AI vendors and demonstrated the value we were able to deliver to our customers.
As COVID-19 struck, KenSci was among the early organizations to stand up a COVID-19 response center for our customers. Several health systems were not able to gain a macro view into the number of cases in their city, the beds available, the ventilators in use and actively manage patient surge to comabt the pandemic.
