Optimized Care Network



Elevating health outcomes through state-of-the-art virtual.





The Optimized Care Network (OCN) is an innovative virtual healthcare delivery model that connects primary and specialty care providers to patients through state-of-the-art CareSpaces. With these revolutionary telemedicine facilities, OCN allows patients all over the world to access world-class healthcare teams without leaving their hometowns.

The potential of telehealth is now clear: by 2020, the market will balloon to $34.27 billion. OCN refines that potential into a polished delivery mechanism that improves health outcomes and drastically lowers healthcare costs for providers and employers. We’re already being used by some of the world’s most respected healthcare organizations.

And we’ve only just begun to bridge the gap between the past and future of healthcare delivery.


There was a time when we all had to stand in the rain and stick our fingers in the air to hail a cab, but the world has evolved since then.

Now, we open our phones and hail an Uber.

Now, there’s often a much more efficient way to bring doctors and patients together. By leveraging OCN’s innovative telehealth technology, doctors and patients no longer need to be in the same room to discuss treatment. Our CareSpace centers make it possible for healthcare providers to see and treat patients virtually, whether they’re across town, across the state or even across the country.


OCN’s innovative network of CareSpaces bridges the gap between patients and providers to create an unmatched experience for everyone involved.

Health Care Organizations (HCOs)
HCOs can now expand without the huge costs that come with opening their own brick-and-mortar clinics.

Because providers and specialists can see more patients virtually than in person, patients get increased access to the best care.

Employers who are losing billions to sick employees and healthcare providers struggling with rising expenses can drastically lower costs through the OCN model.


The heart of the Optimized Care Network is the Optimized CareSpace, a cutting-edge examination room that brings together the latest in medical technology to allow doctors to see, diagnose, treat and interact with patients, even when they’re miles apart.

Optimized CareSpace™
Each of our CareSpaces are designed with patient care in mind, facilitating meaningful connections between patient and provider for an unprecedented level of care.

And when we say our technology is state-of-the-art, we mean it. The examination room combines life-like video technology with the latest in precision medical devices.

Each CareSpace is designed to facilitate meaningful connections between patients and providers, creating an unprecedented level of care for both.

PresenceCare™ Video
PresenceCare is a true life-like video technology that projects the provider directly into the CareSpace, so providers can look their patients in the eye during each interaction. It’s an incredibly dynamic and versatile piece of technology that can adapt to meet the needs of each specific environment.

More importantly, it allows the relationship between patient and provider to flourish by going beyond traditional videochat capabilities to create encounters that rival any in-person interaction- with true high tech/high touch care.

OCN connectedcare™ – Connected Medical Devices
Digital stethoscopes, vital sign monitors, ophthalmoscopes, EKGs, ultrasounds, coordinated care apps… each CareSpace is outfitted with the latest sophisticated medical equipment to ensure that each patient receives the ultimate care coordination. And because recorded information (and even images) can be saved directly to the patient’s Electronic Health Record, review and follow-up care is more efficient- leading to better patient outcomes.

PresenceCare™ Station
The PresenceCare Station is used at the provider end of each interaction, allowing the provider to direct the on-site nurse on technique, and to see every bit of information recorded during the session on the PresenceCare screen for an at-a-glance, real-time view of vital statistics.

Onsite Care Coordination
Each CareSpace is staffed by an RN Care Coordinator. These healthcare professionals are the focal point of each branch of the OCN solution: they provide the warm, caring touch that makes OCN such a memorable healthcare experience for patients. They also handle all documentation and paperwork, leaving providers free to spend more of their valuable time engaging patients.

The OCN approach to healthcare yields undeniable, unrivaled benefits to every sector of the healthcare spectrum. Because it’s so efficient and cost-effective, OCN’s CareSpaces can be deployed almost anywhere better healthcare and lower costs are needed:

Imagine an affordable housing community by offering affordable telehealth services to some of our most vulnerable populations. The possibilities are endless.

OCN envisions a healthcare landscape more accessible, more affordable and remarkably more efficient.




  • Leading Age Ohio

Healthcare costs are skyrocketing out of control. The Affordable Care Act has increased access to healthcare, but it also spawned a recognition of how much further we have to go to complete that mission. OCN is the natural extension of that vision.
