Based on a recent study carried out by the National Practitioner Data Bank that looked at 25 years worth of malpractice payments, it found that diagnostic errors are the leading cause of death due to medical errors. It approximated that 40,000 to 80,000 American citizens die every year due to misdiagnosis.
SecondOpinions.com puts global patients in contact with top-notch U.S. doctors in any given specialty or sub-specialties. After a few hours, patients receive a second opinion from a board qualified physician. Patients are required to upload their digital images (those from MRI, CT, etc) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a detailed report in the comfort of their own home or in the office at work.
Getting a second opinion is loaded with several kinds of benefits. It diminishes any medical errors, keeps healthcare costs down by avoiding any superfluous surgeries or procedures, and most importantly saves lives.
Patients are encouraged to get a second opinion as it eases their nerves and gives them the assurance they need and deserve. Quality assurance methods like second opinions will soon be popularized under The Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
