Enter into the picture, Olio, a Carmel, IN-based company, which provides the only digital communication platform to connect hospital and physician teams with acute and post-acute providers by surgical specialty. Olio’s new technology platform assists physicians in improving patient outcomes and value-based care efforts. The platform uses real-time digital communication and data to enable hospitals and other healthcare providers to track and guide the care of their patients that transition to post-acute care.
