Date:8/28/2013

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

USARAD.com, a leading US Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider, officially launched SecondOpinions.com. This service connects patients all over the world to top American radiology experts and other medical specialists by obtaining same-day, second opinions from board certified experts.

SecondOpinions.com has recently collaborated with iHealthSpot, a leader in the development of comprehensive medical websites to provide patients with access to the award-winning iHealthSpot Patient Education Library. The library provides patients with medically reliable, easy-to-understand information developed and edited by board certified physicians. It contains more than 1,000 conditions and treatments covering over 30 medical specialties that enable patients the ability to search for specific conditions and receive answers from credible healthcare resources. Interactive videos with 3-D animations are also available for patients to watch on various specialties including orthopedics and pain management. The library is updated on a daily basis.

“According to the latest research, 150 million Americans search for health information online and what they find can sometimes be inaccurate and difficult to understand,” said Steve Meadows, MD, Chief Medical Officer of iHealthSpot. The addition of our reliable, easy-to-understand Patient Education on SecondOpinions.com will help those people who are looking to obtain a second opinion, better understand their medical problem. We are truly excited to bring this information to their user base.”

“Not only is it essential for every patient who has an advanced radiological scan such as an MRI or CT scan to get a second opinion,” says Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, CEO and Founder of SecondOpinions.com, we also want our registered patients to be educated about the importance of second opinions, as well as, empower them to learn more about the conditions affecting them. We believe the robust iHealthSpot patient education library allows us to achieve this goal.”

SecondOpinions.com offers a patent-pending, fully automated platform that allows you to easily upload your original radiological images to a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulated, secure and confidential platform and receive your expert second opinion within hours.

Second opinions decrease medical errors; save lives, and keeps healthcare costs down by preventing unnecessary surgeries and procedures. “Now not only will our patients have easy, affordable access to obtain a second opinion, they have the ability to research their condition and gain a better understanding of what is actually going on inside their body,” says Yuz. And the best part is that all of the medical information is now located on one website!

Prices for second opinions range from $29.00 - $99.00 per report. Expert subspecialist radiologists are available 24/7/365 in all 50 states. We also have specialist and sub-specialist physicians in virtually all medical fields who provide second opinion consultations via telephone and video chat at an affordable price as low as $49 per 5-minute consultation. These prices are lower than many insurance co-payments.
