Akeso is building an occupational medicine clinic group that is fundamentally different. Our investment group understands the complexities of workers’ compensation and sees true value in the benefits of outcomes driven quality care. We identify high performing doctors with likeminded goals of improving patient care, and bring them together under an organization that has the resources and experience to support quality care while reducing the friction that hurts the key constituents in our system: employers, payers, doctors an most importantly, the injured worker.
Payers and employers face new challenges in todays market. Occupational medicine has become a chaotic field where one player controls a disproportionate share of the market, and the rest of the industry remains fragmented and inefficient. We see a clear need for a new group that can fill key geographical needs with a reliable solution that drives down costs through an aggressive approach to treating workplace injuries and developing trust between provider and payer with systems that assure clean and accurate bills, guideline compliant treatment plans, and open and direct communications on complex claims. We understand that if we want this system to work better, we must commit to reducing the costs of managing claims and help our partners streamline their operations.
Work comp should be about the patient - understanding what is truly needed to maximize their outcomes and working together to make sure the needed care is delivered in a quality setting by doctors who are motivated to get the injured workers back to work. We are bringing together experts from all sides of workers comp and casualty insurance to build an organization truly different that will remove doctor / insurance conflict and build a new level of trust needed to change how our industry partners to address the needs of injured workers.
