The Wisdom of Local Knowlege
Akamai Practice Management provides software and reimbursement management services to Hawaii's physician community. Our team has been at this for over thirty five years and proudly provides services to over a third of the independent practices on Oahu, Maui, The Big Island, Kauai and Molokai. We are the foremost provider of practice management services in the State and no one does it better.
There are two principal ways we support our clients. We provide software, training and support for practices who take full responsibility for their own billing. Alternatively, practices have the option of outsourcing their "revenue cycle management" to our team of account managers.
Akamai Practice Management is the outgrowth of two earlier companies run by the same team.
In the early 1980's Mark Service, our managing partner, founded Pacific Software with the express purpose of providing medical billing services on the, then new, personal computer platform. With dedicated assistance from Diane Tan (training) and Kong Tan (technical support), Pacific Software developed Medical ABC; Hawaii's most commonly used practice management system in the 1980's and 1990's.
In the late 90's Pacific Software merged with three like-minded mainland practice management companies and created a national organization named VantageMed. Eventually 23 other companies were rolled-up under the VantageMed umbrella and that entity went public, creating one of the countries largest healthcare IT companies serving physicians.
By 2004, it was time to return control of Hawaii's premier practice management company to the State. With their long-standing colleagues, Lee Zegar, Stephanie Akimoto and Brad Lee, the original team from Pacific Software formed Akamai Practice Management. This group of six partners now runs Akamai on a day-to-day basis.
Akamai's clients are limited to medical practices in the state of Hawaii. With that being said, they are representative of Hawaii's medical community at large. They range from solo practices to groups of over 80 doctors, with the vast majority of practices having fewer than five providers. We work with nearly all medical specialties including the following:
Allergy & Immunology
Ear, Nose and Throat
Psychiatry / Psychology
Surgery (many flavors)
Therapy (PT, Behavioral, etc.)
