USARAD Holdings Inc. a leading US Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider is now offering a Complimentary Corporate Membership Plan through SecondOpinions.com. This unique wellness program can lower insurance premiums for businesses, increase employee productivity and improve the overall quality of healthcare.
SecondOpinions.com 2-Year Corporate Membership Plan provides businesses of all sizes with numerous and exciting benefits currently not available elsewhere. For example, employees receive free Radiology Second Opinions on all new studies, free cloud storage of imaging examinations for employees and their families and free 24/7 support. In addition, members can receive 25% off any old examinations as well as any specialty medic consultations via phone or video chat. Members’ friends and family also qualify for a 25% discount. Additional benefits include complimentary 24/7 access to an award winning medical library, a monthly newsletter with health tips and a free mobile app Risk of Disease Calculator (available in January 2014).
Second opinion membership programs are becoming popular among employers of all sizes due to escalating health insurance premiums. In fact, studies have shown that corporate wellness programs lower employer premiums by as much as $2,000 a year per employee. Employee wellness programs that promote and reward healthy behaviors have become the most popular cost containment strategy for employers. Recent surveys have found that more than three quarters of all firms offer at least one wellness program. It has been proven that such programs significantly lower premiums.
At SecondOpinions.com, patients simply upload their radiology images (MRI, CT etc) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a report in the privacy of their own home or office 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. Quality assurance techniques such as second opinions are also encouraged under The Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
To lock into this 2-year complimentary program, employers must sign up by December 31, 2014.
