Working towards an inclusive future

Through early interventions designed around social determinants of health, world-class care, and human-centered technology, we can build a healthcare model that allows all patients to live their fullest lives. 

Our Story

Akido was created out of the University of Southern California’s Digital Health Lab (D-Health) in 2015. 

At USC D-Health, we saw that, despite trillions of dollars spent and the best intentions, our healthcare systems fail to meet the complex needs of our county’s most vulnerable populations. We also saw the potential for rapidly advancing data and digital technologies to transform our health system — delivering on a promise of comprehensive care that helps citizens prevent problems from becoming chronic nightmares. So our founders set out to gather the best minds in technology, public health, and medicine to launch Akido.

Today, we are building a “full stack” medical network, allowing us to create a revolutionary approach focused on the whole person and preventative care.
