Augmedix Reports Strong Commercial Traction and Sales Momentum; Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Financial Results
SAN FRANCISCO, March 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Augmedix (Nasdaq: AUGX), a leading provider of ambient medical documentation and data solutions delivered remotely to healthcare systems, physician practices, hospitals, and telemedicine practitioners, today reported financial results for the three and 12 months ended December 31, 2022.
“We finished 2022 with our best-ever fourth quarter in terms of bookings, with sales momentum continuing into 2023 with record first-quarter bookings, including our largest-ever clinician cohort signed,” said Manny Krakaris, Chief Executive Officer at Augmedix. “Our expanding portfolio of products has positioned us well for the large market opportunity in front of us, and we look forward to delivering strong results in 2023 with improving operating leverage.”
Continued Krakaris, “Our innovative technology is engineered to relieve the documentation burden for clinicians, allows the patient and doctor to truly connect at the point of care, and structures the visit data that ultimately improves future outcomes for patients and healthcare providers. We operate at the nexus of the critical issues impacting large health systems and U.S. healthcare overall, which are patient access, patient outcomes, and the cost curve. Helping health systems solve these big issues is leading to larger engagements and increased interest from both existing and new systems, as shown by our recent wins. Our development efforts are focused on delivering innovative products that can affect behavior at the point of care to drive better outcomes at scale so that we make a meaningful impact on the industry.”

Definition of Key Metrics
Dollar-Based Net Revenue Retention: We define a "Health Enterprise" as a company or network of doctors that has at least 50 clinicians currently employed or affiliated that could utilize our services. Dollar-based net revenue retention is determined as the revenue from Health Enterprises as of twelve months prior to such period end as compared to revenue from these same Health Enterprises as of the current period end, or current period revenue. Current period revenue includes any expansion or new products and is net of contraction or churn over the trailing twelve months but excludes revenue from new Health Enterprises in the current period. We believe growth in dollar-based net revenue retention is a key indicator of the performance of our business as it demonstrates our ability to increase revenue across our existing customer base through expansion of users and products, as well as our ability to retain existing customers.
Average Clinicians in Service: We define a clinician in service as an individual doctor, nurse practitioner or other healthcare professional using our products. We average the month-end number of clinicians in service for all months in the measurement period and the number of clinicians in service at the end of the month immediately preceding the measurement period. We believe growth in the average number of clinicians in service is a key indicator of the performance of our business as it demonstrates our ability to penetrate the market and grow our business.
Augmedix is on a mission to help clinicians and patients form a human connection at the point of care with seamless technology. Augmedix’s proprietary Notebuilder Platform extracts relevant data from natural clinician-patient conversations and converts that data into medical notes in real time, which are seamlessly transferred to the EHR. The company’s platform uses Automatic Speech Recognition, Natural Language Processing, including Large Language Models, and Medical Documentation Specialists to generate accurate and timely medical notes to healthcare providers. Leveraging this platform, Augmedix’s products relieve clinicians of administrative burden, in turn, reducing burnout and increasing both clinician and patient satisfaction. Augmedix is also leading the revolution in leveraging point-of-care data by making connections between millions of physician-patient interactions and analyzing them to deliver actionable insights that elevate patient care. Augmedix is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, with offices around the world. To learn more, visit www.augmedix.com.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted cost of revenue, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating expenses, EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our recurring core business operating results, like one-time transaction costs related to the reverse merger and OTC listing. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity as well as comparisons to our competitors' operating results. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (2) they are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the health of our business.
There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures. We compensate for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures and evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures together with their relevant financial measures in accordance with GAAP.
