Akeso is building an occupational medical 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 like-minded goals of improving patient care, and bring them together under an organization that has the resources and experience to support quality care. At the same time, we reduce the friction that hurts the key constituents in our system: employers, payers, doctors and most importantly, the injured worker.
Payers and employers face new challenges in today’s 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 approach: a group that can fill key geographical needs with a reliable solution that also, drives down costs through an aggressive approach to treating workplace injuries. This model fosters 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 the system to work better, we as providers must commit to reducing the costs of managing claims and help our partners streamline their operations.
Workers’ compensation should be about the patient - understanding what is truly needed to maximize medical outcomes and then working together to make sure that care is delivered in a quality setting by doctors who are motivated to get the injured workers back to work. That’s why we are bringing together experts from all sides of workers’ compensation and casualty insurance to build a different organization that removes doctor / insurance conflict and builds the level of trust needed to change how industry partners to address the needs of injured workers.
