Therapy. Simplified.

Our team created Ambiki to reduce the external barriers preventing therapists from delivering the exceptional therapy they want to provide. The vision is driven by a goal for better, more integrated tools to efficiently handle all aspects of speech, occupational, and physical therapy. Ambiki provides a comprehensive suite of seamless tools from onboarding a patient, scheduling, session planning, billing, teletherapy, and much, much more.
