New med clinics using artificial intelligence open in Phoenix Area

Akos Med Clinic–using a self-guided medical station powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR)–has opened in two Phoenix-area Safeway stores, the company said.

Akos Med Clinic, a provider of the urgent care and telemedicine arenas, has partnered with Safeway to bring in-store medical clinics that are convenient and efficient for today´s busy shopper.

This first-of-its-kind approach to healthcare delivery is achieved through technology developed by AdviNOW Medical combined with Akos´ virtual health platform. Many conditions routinely seen in doctor´s offices or urgent care centers can be quickly and effectively treated here such as sinus infections, earaches, sore throats, rashes, strains and sprains, or UTIs.

Developed by a team of physicians, Akos launched its revolutionary telehealth platform in 2016. Named “2017 Innovator of the Year” at the Governor´s Celebration of Innovation, Akos powers a new type of virtual practice, offering a fully integrated HIPAA-compliant healthcare solution for patients, physicians, employers and medical centers across the United States.

AdviNOW Medical uses Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality to power a patient-friendly medical station to evolve and improve the healthcare encounter–resulting in reduced overhead, greater patient through-put, billing timeliness and efficiency, and faster value-based, incentivized data collection. The lead investor in AdviNOW Medical is GlobalMed. For more information, visit
