Location:Redmond, Washington
Job Type:Full Time

In Microsoft Health Next, our goal is to accelerate innovation by bringing new AI and cloud- based services to life, to improve health outcomes and lower costs.​ Our team drives the cross-company strategy for healthcare and life sciences, and builds and applies Microsoft's deep technical assets to improve healthcare and health equity around the world.

One critical problem is physician burn-out. For every hour doctors spend with their patients, they spend two hours on process and clerical tasks. Through our EmpowerMD incubation, we examined ambient intelligence for the clinic to allow doctors focus on what they do best: taking care of patients. Through our co-development partnership with Nuance Communications, we are now taking ambient clinical intelligence to market.
