Better Occupational Health
Starts Here

We develop occupational medicine clinic groups that improve injured worker outcomes through a focus on the patient and a commitment to better partnerships with the payor.


Finally, occupational medicine
clinics that work!

Top performing doctors. Streamlined processes. Quality medical care. Together, they form Akeso Medical.


Akeso Occupational Health is unique: high performing occupational medical clinics, focused on quality care, driven to heal the patient quickly for a successful return to work, with billing and UR practices to streamline administration and lower costs for payors.


Founded by leaders in outcomes-based medicine, Akeso knows who the top doctors are, based on empirical evidence. These physicians understand the goals of workers’ compensation and are experts at producing better outcomes for injured workers, employers and payors.


The right treatment is delivered quickly through connected teams. The experience of the injured worker is easy and convenient, not frustrating and fragmented. Digital tools link everyone for faster, better, patient-centered care.


The Akeso  approach raises the bar for treatment for every injured worker. It is especially valuable for patients needing complex care, which may require long-term treatment and oversight. With Akeso Medical, litigation is reduced and disability management improved through positive reinforcement and oversight.

The benefits of Akeso's
scale & growth opportunities

Process Efficiency


Smaller clinics have to overcome significant obstacles to succeed in a competitive environment. We have the resources and backing to invest in better IT platforms and proprietary solutions that reduce the overhead of running clinics and streamline the process for managing claims and approvals.

Organic Revenue Growth

The clinics we bring together all have strong community relationships. When several like minded clinics combine, their reach extends to neighboring communities
​​​​​​​and they become part of larger regional and national relationships that increases patient traffic and improves topline growth.

Aquisition Growth

Our private equity partners have created a fund with the power and backing to drive aggressive growth. We have the means to acquire top practices and build new clinics from the ground up to achieve the scale and coverage needed to be a meaningful partner to large national payors.

Operating Leverage

Centralizing key functions related to authorization approvals and resolving billing issues has an immediate impact on clinic profitability and allows the doctors and clinic staff to focus on patient care and delivery of quality medicine.
