The Gentem Story
The Revival of Medical Practices
“Gentem” is the Latin word for “revival.” Our founders launched Gentem with the goal of reviving this country’s private healthcare practices.
Every year, an increasing number of healthcare practices struggle with administrative complexities, reimbursements and cash flow needed to run viable businesses. Insurance reimbursements continue to drop while costs rise, leading to an unprecedented decline in privately owned practices.
Fisayo Ositelu, MD, a Stanford-educated physician, was inspired to start Gentem after experiencing this administrative burden first-hand. Fisayo partnered with Emmanuel (Manny) Akintayo, a former Facebook software engineer, and founded Gentem in 2019. Together, they set out to address a growing crisis in healthcare — the increasing difficulty for doctors to run financially viable medical practices.
Fixing a Broken Reimbursement System
Gentem transforms the reimbursement experience by leveraging AI-powered automation, data science and the latest financial technologies. By combining this technology with a team of insurance billing experts, we help practices get reimbursed faster and more successfully.
Looking beyond our direct work with private practices, we decided in 2022 to extend our technology to other digital health companies and EHRs. By integrating our automated revenue cycle management (RCM) systems and patient payment solutions with these platforms, we’re able to help more private practices thrive.
