IMG URAC Accredited Subsidiary Launches New Web Site

April 04, 2012

New Web site launch

Akeso Care Management® (ACM®), a URAC accredited international health care management company, announced today the launch of its redesigned Web site, www.akesocare.com.  It is part of a continued effort by ACM’s parent company, International Medical Group®, Inc. (IMG®), to develop a more cohesive Web presence for its family of companies, while improving the overall user experience for visitors to its sites.  The site enables easier navigation and serves as a virtual access point for the breadth of services ACM offers. 

“Considerable thought has gone into our Web presence and we are more than pleased with the launch of the new design,” said Carolyn Tinsley, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of ACM.  “While Web pages alone will never deliver the level of personal service for which our staff has become known, this site provides our clients and prospective clients a solid platform where they can quickly and easily find important information on all of our services, including our Medical Concierge Service, Disease Management Program and International Case Management.  Utilizing current technology to enhance our Web site allows us to continue providing the highest level of service.” 

Unique to the industry is ACM’s Medical Concierge Service.  This provides ACM clients with critical information on provider ratings, treatment outcome and cost of care prior to receiving medical treatment for non-emergency medical conditions - all in the area where they are planning treatment.  Additionally, they receive verification of physician admitting privileges, verification of PPO participation, educational material concerning the procedure, assistance with scheduling appointments and more.  According to Tinsley, clients ultimately choose their provider, however, with the information supplied by the Medical Concierge Service, they can make informed decisions about where to have procedures performed, which will effectively reduce their health care costs.

Additionally, Tinsley stated ACM clients are better positioned to maximize the quality of care they receive through its vast array of other services, which can all be found at the new site, including:

  • Utilization Management - ACM evaluates the medical necessity for hospitalizations and out-patient services, so that clients receive health care in the most appropriate and cost-effective manner.
  • Comprehensive Case Management – ACM’s medical personnel assist patients and providers in developing a collaborative approach to highly complex cases requiring detailed management.
  • Transplant Network Access – ACM provides full access to four of the largest and most cost-effective transplant networks in the U.S., and its Transplant Coordination Team provides complete assistance patients on transplant cases.
  • Out-of-Network Claim Negotiation - ACM uses multiple negotiation strategies to minimize the financial impact of claims that fall outside of a client’s primary network.
