USARAD Holdings Inc., a leading U.S. Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider launched SecondOpinions.com one year ago. The service which offers a state-of-the-art, proprietary, web-based consumer platform connecting patients globally to top U.S. physicians in any medical specialty has experienced an exponential growth. Today SecondOpinions.com announced that it will become a crucial part of Russia’s massive healthcare reform by launching a Russian version of its website, SecondOpinions.ru.
It is estimated that only 20 percent of Russia’s population of 142 million has access to quality healthcare. Most of the hospitals are run down, underfunded and, according to The Russian Ministry of Health, there is an acute shortage of physicians.
“There is a tremendous need for improved healthcare in Russia, my native country,” said Michael Yuz, MD, Founder and CEO of SecondOpinions.com. “We are uniquely positioned to meet the medical challenges facing this country by bringing our telemedicine and teleradiology services to the people of Russia by recently launching a Russian version of our website www.SecondOpinions.ru,” added Dr. Yuz.
The reform of the entire Russian healthcare and pharmaceutical sector tops the country’s political agenda as the Kremlin extends its attempts to improve the lives of Russia’s citizens as well as to diversify the Russian economy. One of the biggest obstacles Russia must overcome is its severe lack of physicians, specifically specialists including radiologists. For example the number of Russian radiologists (1.3 per 10,000 people) has not grown since the 1980s. There is a tremendous need for improved healthcare, better medical equipment and qualified medical professionals.
SecondOpinions.com connects patients globally to top U.S. physicians in any specialty and sub-specialties. Within hours, patients receive a second opinion from a board-certified physician. Patients simply upload their DVD images (MRI, CT etc.) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a report in the privacy of their own home or office. 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.
The prices for standard radiology second opinions range from $49.00 -$99.00 per report. No appointments are needed, patients don’t have to wait days or weeks for a new consultation and the second opinion is received within hours of submission. Expert subspecialist radiologists are available 24/7/365 in all 50 states and across the globe. In addition, specialist and sub-specialist physicians in all medical fields provide second opinion consultations via telephone and video chat for as low as $49 per 5-minute consultation. This cost is less than many insurance co-payments.
