When should I use MORE Health?
MORE Health provides diagnostic services for all serious illnesses for patients around the world. Our specialties include oncology, cardiology, neurology, and pediatrics.
What is a Co-Diagnosis?
A Collaborative Diagnosis is a powerful process that brings together an expert MORE Health Physician Specialist with your attending doctor to develop the best possible diagnosis and treatment plan.
What is an Independent Second Opinion?
An objective expert medical second opinion and treatment plan carefully researched and developed by one of MORE Health's Physician Specialists.
What is a Physician Specialist?
A recognized expert medical professional who is exceptionally qualified and regularly deals with serious illness.
Selection criteria includes technical knowledge, experience, hospital affiliation, peer review rankings, and published research.
We further rank these physicians based on patient reviews to make sure our patients receive skilled empathetic and expert doctors.
Do I need my doctor's permission to get a medical second opinion?
The American Medical Association's code of ethics states that doctors should encourage their patients to obtain a second opinion when either the patient or the doctor feels it is appropriate.
Most doctors are willing and comfortable to participate in obtaining a second opinion.
What do I say to my doctor?
Tell your attending doctor that because of the serious nature of your condition you want a second opinion and ask if they would consider collaborating with one of our Physician Specialists.
Doing so ensures an environment of mutual trust and a strong working relationship between the medical professionals working on your case.
It also provides you, the patient, with the expert diagnosis and optimal treatment plan you need.
What happens when my doctor and the MORE Health Physician Specialist disagree?
If your attending doctor and our Physician Specialist collaborate, produce differing assessments, and are unable to come to a joint agreement, then the concluding report will thoroughly detail how they differ.
You will be able to understand how they arrived at their respective opinions and decide how best to proceed.
While several of our Independent Second Opinion cases have corrected the initial diagnosis or improved the treatment plan, to date, none of our Co-Diagnosis cases have ever ended with differing opinions, demonstrating that collaboration works.
How do I send my medical records to MORE Health?
In the event that you request our services, then your MORE Health Case Manager will work with your attending doctor's office to gather and import all relevant medical data into our Physician Collaboration Platform.
We adhere to the most stringent privacy and security measures, as set by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
