Dr. Mark McKenna is Modernizing Elective Medical Procedures

Some cosmetic medical procedures are so simple that they can be performed nearly anywhere. That’s the idea that Dr. Mark McKenna is banking on with his vision for a modern chain of cosmetic medical offices that provides house-call style services utilizing freelance practitioners. His company, OVME, is launching a new app that will change the way that minimally invasive cosmetic medical practices are administered.

Dr. Mark McKenna earned his medical degree at Tulane Medical School. He practiced medicine at his father’s practice but decided to pursue real estate as his primary career. He built a real estate business in New Orleans over several years until Hurricane Katrina hit and cost him millions overnight. After relocating to Atlanta, Georgia, he started a company called ShapeMed that offered laser hair removal, cosmetic treatments, and nutrition and fitness counseling. He sold that company to Lifetime Fitness in 2015 and went to work for them. After some time, he quit because he decided that it wasn’t a good fit for him. He had a different idea to meet specific needs he thought were underserved in the beauty and health industry.

His new venture, OVME, is building a brand around retail medical aesthetics that focuses on user experience. Dr. Mark McKenna wanted to make these kinds of procedures attainable without necessarily visiting a doctor’s office. Emailed forms will encourage customers to avoid that awkward situation of filling out medical information at an office. Patients can come into the office and go straight to the patient coordinator. The app will facilitate the practice of sending medical professionals out to patients’ homes.

Dr. Mark McKenna knows that all of these elective procedures are meant to bring out peoples’ inner confidence and give them the energy to accomplish their goals. He has looked at his field from the perspective of the customer and built his strategy around customizing his service for the individual. The technology, design, and data that he has collected have created an original modern approach to retail medical aesthetics.


The Capitol Anesthesiology Association and its Commitment to Medical Excellence

In the same manner that anesthesiology is vital to medicine, the Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) is vital to those in need of this particular medical practice. Serving the Texas capital of Austin and surrounding communities, the CAA is considered one of the largest medical practices specifically dedicated to providing anesthetic services.

The CAA was established in 1973 and today employs some 80 medical doctors, all of whom have either been certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology or are striving for certification, and more than 100 registered nurse anesthetists. Its staff serves more than 20 hospitals, trauma centers and surgical facilities, providing the entire spectrum of anesthesiological services. These services include general anesthesia, “twilight sleep” procedures and care for children, the latter of which requires additional training and separate certification. Anesthesia makes possible surgery and other medical treatments by eliminating anxiety before and pain during and after the respective procedure.

The CAA is committed to providing the highest possible level of health care. This commitment is reflected by the fact that its services are constantly ranked near the top among anesthetic facilities in the United States. Additionally, the CAA works with the Anesthetic Quality Institute, which emphasizes education and data reporting, in order to guarantee the continued quality of its services. Backing up its clinical personnel is an administrative staff that is dedicated to providing customers with a smooth and effective billing process.

Outside of their medical services, CAA staff members are renowned for their involvement in a number of humanitarian organizations, including Eels on Wheels, Family Eldercare and Partnerships for Children.
