ARE THOSE PROCEDURES REALLY NECESSARY? THE PROS AND CONS OF SECOND OPINION SERVICES

Chris Dollins, Co-founder, EMPLOYER FLEXIBLE
Clinton Phillips, Founder and CEO, 2NDMD

Some 30 percent of healthcare costs are spent on unnecessary procedures. Wellness, disease management, and onsite clinics fail to address this massive cost. Transparency solutions can improve procedure costs but can't validate if the procedures are required in the first place. When doctors at leading institutions give second opinions, 70 percent discover more up-to-date and appropriate treatment options. This session will highlight the benefits and challenges of second opinion services, and their impact on employee morale and productivity.
