Healthcare technology startup UnityAI has secured $4m in its seed funding round to aid in streamlining hospital workflow.

Pre-seed investment firm Max Ventures, based in New York City, US, is leading the funding round, with participation from another pre-seed investor Whistler Capital Partners, which remains the largest investor in UnityAI.

Nashville Capital Network and Company Ventures also contributed, marking the latter’s inaugural healthcare investment from its new Nashville office.

A select group of Nashville-based healthcare angels also invested as part of the funding round.

The investment is expected to bolster the company's innovative approach to optimising hospital bed management through advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Poised to challenge the conventional hospital bed management systems, UnityAI's technology focuses on the way hospitals allocate beds, enhancing resource management and patient care.

The company is currently collaborating with various healthcare providers to deploy its offering, to bring about a significant impact on patient care throughout the sector.

This approach is intended at boosting quality and efficiency by bolstering operational smoothness.

With the introduction of AI-optimised operations to hospitals, UnityAI's technology will assist them in moving patients through their facilities in an efficient manner.

UnityAI CEO Dr Edmund Jackson said: “Our unique approach will empower hospitals to dissolve complexity to operate more smoothly, efficiently, and ultimately provide better care to patients. This funding will accelerate our efforts to make a significant impact on the healthcare system.”

The company also uses advanced reinforcement learning AI and classical optimisation to generate prompt, valuable material, which is subsequently communicated ergonomically into healthcare workflows through large language models (LLMs).

Max Ventures official Ryan Darnell said: “UnityAI has the right approach to solving a critical challenge in healthcare. The combination of the founders' deep industry knowledge and the thoughtfulness of how they are applying new technology to the problem has the potential to transform how hospitals handle bed control.”
