UnityAI secures $4 Mn in Seed Funding to revolutionize hospital flow

Company will apply AI technologies including reinforcement learning and LLMs, to optimize how patients flow through hospitals.

UnityAI, a healthcare technology startup founded by three seasoned engineers and data scientists with backgrounds at HCA Healthcare, a leading hospital and healthcare company in the United States, announced the successful closure of its seed funding round, securing $4 million in total capital to date.

The founders, Dr. Edmund Jackson, CEO, Cody Hall, and Dr. Jason Parker, bring a wealth of expertise in the health care sector, where they identified a critical need for innovation in hospital operations. Using their collective experience and insights, they established UnityAI with a mission to transform how hospitals optimize patient flow.

A guiding principle for UnityAI is to simultaneously improve quality and efficiency by improving operational smoothness. Its technology will introduce AI-optimized operations to hospitals, helping them efficiently and carefully move patients through their facilities.

Dr. Jackson believes that “outcomes such as quality, experience, efficiency and satisfaction cannot be constructed directly. Instead, they grow out of a smooth, disciplined environment and our mission is to use AI to help create those environments.” UnityAI employs state-of-the-art reinforcement learning AI, as well as classical optimization to create timely, valuable content, and then employs LLMs to communicate that content ergonomically into hospital workflow.

The round is being led by Max Ventures, located in New York City. The pre-seed investor, Whistler Capital Partners, is co-investing and remains the largest investor. Additional investors are Nashville Capital Network and Company Ventures, as well as a small number of Nashville-based healthcare angels. This deal will represent Company Venture’s first healthcare investment out of its new Nashville office.

“We are thrilled to have the support of our investors as we embark on this mission to revolutionize hospital flow,” said Dr. Jackson, CEO of UnityAI. “We believe that high-quality care and highly efficient care are actually the same thing. 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.”

“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,” said Ryan Darnell of Max Ventures.

“We’re deeply impressed with what the UnityAI team has already accomplished and can’t wait to see what their team does with this next round of capital; Nashville is a hugely strategic market for Whistler Capital Partners, and we’re excited that our investment is so closely aligned with the economy and healthcare community here,” said Geoff Clark, managing partner at Whistler Capital.

UnityAI has already achieved significant milestones with its initial funding and is poised to disrupt the traditional hospital bed management paradigm. The company is actively engaging with healthcare providers to implement its solution and looks forward to making a positive impact on patient care across the industry.
