PHOENIX – May 4, 2017 – Leading telemedicine provider Akos has been recognized as “Outstanding Medical Startup of the Year” in the 10th Annual Healthcare Leadership Awards presented by AZ Business Magazine. Akos was honored in front of the most respected business leaders in the Arizona healthcare industry last Thursday at Chateau Luxe in Phoenix.

“We are honored to be recognized with such a prestigious award in our first year by the leading business authority AZ Business Magazine,” said cofounder Dr. Kishlay Anand. “The award is a reminder of the important work we’re undertaking with our virtual platform in transforming healthcare and removing barriers to access and affordability for patients and employers alike. We believe this is just the beginning for Akos’ accomplishments and look forward to using our platform to revolutionize how individuals and businesses access healthcare in the future.”

Arizona is home to many influential health industry leaders, innovators, researchers and advocates who make healthcare in Arizona an economic engine that enhances everyone’s lives. This was the first year AZ Business Magazine recognized “outstanding medical startup” as a category in the annual awards. Akos was recognized for its continued efforts to improve healthcare in the community and leverage new technology to help individuals and businesses.

“We’re paving the way by pioneering the digital health transformation offering an innovative, multifaceted healthcare solution that truly meets both personal and professional needs,” said cofounder Dr. Swaraj Singh. “We help businesses and employees thrive at work by providing timely access to healthcare for workplace injuries with prompt management which promotes speedy recovery and an early return to work. For patients and families, our platform offers convenience and ease, reducing costs and improving access.”
