Otta's take on AKASA

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

The US healthcare system is financially and operationally complex. This is a costly problem for patients and providers alike, with an estimated $500 billion spent on medical billing and insurance administrative costs in a year. AKASA (formerly known as Alpha Health) offers Unified Automation™ technology that helps automate revenue cycle operations, purpose built to help alleviate this healthcare burden.

AKASA combines the corrective value of human involvement with automated or AI processes. Its machine learning tools are complemented by a team of revenue cycle specialists who handle the edge cases, and teach the algorithm in the process. It’s an exciting, and potentially industry-shaping proposition in spite of its specialist focus. If successful, it could prove a powerful model to adopt in other sectors.
