SecondOpinions.com Introduces Second Opinion & Quality Assurance Services for All Doctors, Hospitals & Clinics in the USA and Globally

USARAD Holdings Inc. a leading US Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider is uniquely positioned to partner with individual physicians, hospitals and all medical facilities to provide independent, around the clock, second opinion services via its consumer division, SecondOpinions.com. Due to the complexities of medicine, this service is invaluable when dealing with time-sensitive, diagnostic challenges or when there is uncertainty as to the course of treatment that is recommended. Consultations are available in all medical specialties and obtaining a second opinion is simple and affordable.

In addition, SecondOpinions.com can assist all medical facilities with independent Quality Assurance (QA) & Peer Review Programs for achieving and maintaining accreditations by specialty colleges such as American College of Radiology (ACR). These programs are now mandated by many insurance carriers and other organizations and accrediting bodies. These programs are also mandated under The Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

USARAD Holdings has years of success assisting hospitals, imaging centers and clinics with medical imaging capability utilizing Quality Assurance Programs. “USARAD has been assisting our department with our Quality Assurance program for approximately 1 year and we find their service to be quick and reliable. Their independent reviews have been invaluable in maintaining our ACR accreditation as well as to internally improve patient care,” said James J. Baron, MBA, Radiology Manager, Southern Inyo Healthcare District, Lone Pine, CA.

Now, through SecondOpinions.com, Quality Assurance Programs are expanded into all areas of medicine, not just radiology. With an existing national network of board-certified specialists and subspecialists, SecondOpinions.com possesses the infrastructure to offer Quality Assurance/Peer Review Service on a national and global level. Our expert physicians provide comprehensive feedback, detailed reporting, and offer medico-legal information as part of their communication efforts with referring physicians. This service benefits physicians and medical facilities by enhancing performance and measuring improvement on a quarterly or annual basis.

Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, CEO and founder of USARAD / SecondOpinions.com, said, “The primary goals of such programs include reduction in medical errors, avoidance of unnecessary procedures and surgeries, improvement in quality of healthcare and overall physician performance. Ultimately, this will make an important difference in patient care, enhance outcomes and lower healthcare costs.”

At SecondOpinions.com, simply upload digital images (MRI, CT etc.) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a report within hours. 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 also gives patients the peace of mind they need and deserve.
