Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
USARAD.com, a leading U.S. Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider, recently launched SecondOpinions.com to benefit multiple stakeholders including consumers, employers and healthcare providers. This unique service which features state-of-the-art proprietary web-based consumer platform connects patients globally to top U.S. physicians in any specialty and sub-specialty.
For those who use this service multiple times per year, SecondOpinions.com Membership Program gives clients the opportunity to buy an annual membership with unlimited or deeply discounted second opinions from top specialists and sub-specialists.
Individual and family plans start at an affordable $9.99 per month, while employer plans start at only $6.99 per month per employee. Physician and medical facilities receive one-year free membership and obtain 50-percent off of radiology second opinions and 20-percent off of general medical consultations. Besides cost savings, membership programs offer a number of exciting features and perks. Patients have 24/7 access to a comprehensive medical library, lifetime storage of radiology records and unlimited radiology second opinions. In addition, some plans offer general and even specialty medical consultations.
New membership programs are especially beneficial to patients who receive numerous second opinions each year. Patients like Jack Cooksey of Fort Collins, Colorado. “Unfortunately, my wife and I have significant health issues that require ongoing imaging. I can’t even express in a few words how incredibly important this service has been to us.” Cooksey has used SecondOpinions.com six times. “They’ve provided superior, detailed readings comparing images of different types (MRI, X-ray, CT Scans) and from different hospitals for a fraction of the cost of the initial single readings by the imaging centers.” Cooksey has recommended SecondOpinions.com to doctors and friends. “We were very pleased to learn SecondOpinions.com is now offering membership plans. For anyone expecting a series of images related to surgery or other health issues, the membership plan is a great way to save on services that are already surprisingly inexpensive.”
SecondOpinions.com allows patients to simply upload their radiology images (MRI, CT etc.) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a report in the privacy of their own home or office. In addition, doctors in virtually every medical specialty are on standby to provide consultations via phone or video chat. Obtaining a second opinion decreases medical errors, saves lives, and keeps healthcare costs down by preventing unnecessary surgeries and procedures. It gives patients the peace of mind they need and deserve. Quality assurance techniques such as second opinions will soon be mandatory for physicians and medical facilities under The Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
