How to make a Telemedicine appointment

If you feel that your condition can be treated by a video visit, please obtain treatment authorization from your supervisor and e-mail it to:  workstatus@akesomedical.com

 

2. Call your designated clinic and let the operator know that you need to schedule appointment with a Akeso Occupational Health provider. Please save this number in your phone as “Akeso Appointments Coordinator”, so you will recognize this number for follow-up appointments. Based on your preference, we will send you a text or email with a link which will guide you through the process of establishing a telemedicine appointment.

 

If you already have an appointment (existing work injuries):
You will receive a phone call 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Please save this number in your phone as “Akeso Appointments Coordinator” so you will recognize this number. If the coordinator is not able to reach you by phone, they will text you. Please call them back immediately to allow sufficient time to set-up the video visit with an Akeso provider.
