COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For patients weighing orthopedic surgery, concern about hidden, unrestrained costs often outweighs any anxiety they might have about the procedure itself. Recognizing and acting on this reality, Orthopedic Care Network has developed a bold new approach offering improved outcomes, cost containment features and forward-thinking payment options to accelerate their patients’ return to physical and financial health.
Embracing the Future. OCN is acutely aware that times are changing. Today you can use cryptocurrency to purchase a Tesla, shop at Home Depot, make a PayPal transaction… and the list of companies accepting cryptocurrency in exchange for goods and services is growing daily. Years from now, many medical providers will no doubt offer that option – but OCN is boldly offering it to its patients today.
Improved Outcomes. Orthopedic Care Network limits its membership to only top tier members of the orthopedic surgical community and to the most elite medical facilities. Eligibility to practice in the network is exclusive to highly rated physicians whose track records meet OCN’s stringent requirements for things like infection, readmission and revision rates for joint replacement, arthroscopy and spinal surgeries. OCN offers patients a free initial consult, referral to US and world-renowned surgeons in the network, telemedicine capabilities and VIP 24/7 access to their doctors.
Cost Containment. Pricing for OCN services is completely transparent. Whether the patient is receiving a partial knee replacement, a total hip replacement, a rotator cuff repair or a cervical disc replacement, they are given a fixed “bundle” price that includes ALL services related to their procedure – without any gimmicks, asterisks or hidden charges. The fixed price even includes things like: concierge services such as airline, transportation and lodging arrangements; streamlined billing and payment services; and assistance with follow-up care. And for patients in Canada facing extended wait times for their elective surgery, OCN’s travel assistance, transparent pricing and financing options give them the chance to get back to their lives much quicker than they ever expected.
The Takeaway. For decades, medical technologies and capabilities have outpaced the actual service that patients receive. Orthopedic Care Network has successfully closed that gap with its enlightened approach, affording its patients with the opportunity to enjoy a measurably improved healthcare experience.
