AKASA is building the future of Healthcare with AI.
They’re on a mission to remedy the financial complexity crippling healthcare in America.
Their aim is to organize and use all healthcare information to reduce the cost of care and improve the patient experience.
As the only Unified Automation™ company for healthcare, they use the same machine learning approaches that made driverless cars possible to provide health systems with a single solution for core operational management. AKASA’s unique expert-in-the-loop approach, Unified Automation, combines modern machine learning with human judgment and subject matter expertise to provide resilient automation. AKASA brings together the best of people, data, and technology to efficiently, accurately, and autonomously navigate the complex state of medical reimbursement in the United States.
They are growing rapidly and they’ve built a cross-functional skillset deep into the DNA of the company. They have technology experts from top Silicon Valley technology companies (Google, Facebook, etc) and machine learning Ph.D. programs (Stanford, etc). They also have senior leaders from the frontlines of healthcare with decades of experience leading teams at prominent healthcare institutions in the US. And they have a deep bench of talent from healthcare services firms like the Advisory Board, Optum, and Triage Consulting.
If you love to execute, they’d love to hear from you. They take a very mindful approach to building a culture that is flexible, diverse, and inclusive. They approach their work thoughtfully, learn quickly, improve constantly, and celebrate their wins. Everyone is welcome — as an inclusive workplace, their employees are comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work. Be you.
