About Latent

What we do

Latent builds medical language models to help hospitals authorize drugs super fast. We sit right in the intersection of healthcare and AI. We have signed enterprise contracts with several of the largest healthcare organizations in the world, and have more waiting to use our product!


There is 1 trillion dollars of paperwork waste in healthcare today. For the first time, we can use language models to effectively automate all of it away. This is a very large opportunity, and we are breaking into the market by tackling prior authorizations.

We are an early stage company with an incredible opportunity in front of us. We are growing fast, improving patient care for millions of people, and removing massive amounts of cost from the system.

All hands are on deck to build and deliver value for our early partners.
