Getting an Expert Second Opinion

Your employees are your most valuable asset. Ensuring that they have access to quality medical care is crucial to helping them stay healthy, and that, in turn, can help your company continue to provide excellent service. The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic offers expert medical opinions that can help your employees navigate complex medical decisions. With direct access to experts in clinical specialties such as oncology, orthopedics, and cardiology, your employees can get the information they need to make informed decisions about their health. Expert medical opinions – delivered virtually – can also help your employees manage their health care costs, spend less time away from work, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have access to quality medical expertise.

For conditions like cancer, musculoskeletal issues, or heart disease, an expert second opinion can be invaluable. Making this option available to your employees can save more than just time and money—it can also save lives.

The Biggest Benefits of Expert Second Opinions

Time Saved

Expert second opinions provided by The Clinic by Cleveland Clinic can save your employees time. Traditionally, if an employee had a medical question, they would have to take time off from work to see their doctor. Finding a specialist, waiting for a referral, scheduling an appointment, and taking time off for the appointment can take weeks. And employees located in rural areas may have to travel long distances to see a specialist. With an expert second opinion program, employees can get the information they need virtually, without having to take time off from work.

Cost Savings

Another big benefit of expert second opinions is cost savings. By avoiding unnecessary trips to the doctor, your employees can save on other out-of-pocket costs. In addition, expert medical opinions can help employees compare treatment options and make informed decisions about their care. This can help avoid costly mistakes, such as undergoing a more expensive treatment option when a less expensive one would have been just as effective or even a more effective course of treatment.

Improved Mental Health

The stress of dealing with a medical issue can take a toll on an employee’s mental health. The peace of mind that comes with knowing they have access to quality medical expertise can help improve an employee’s mental health. When top medical specialists are just a few clicks away, your employees can get the answers they need without having to worry about the potential consequences of making a wrong decision.
