Millions of people around the world will be diagnosed with cancer this year. About half of those patients will die. In fact, cancer remains one of the most life-threatening issues globally.
With this in mind, many patients facing cancer treatment are eager to receive critical care second opinions. That way, they and their personal physicians can move more confidently toward a successful outcome. And although getting a second opinion on a cancer diagnosis or wanting to explore cancer treatment options is normal, it can be frustrating, difficult, and costly to get that second opinion — especially from an expert doctor.
Fortunately, cancer patients who are able to work with MORE Health have fewer barriers to accessing a network of specialists and expert doctors who can provide knowledgeable insights. For instance, one patient who was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer received a remote second opinion made possible by MORE Health after not responding to his first rounds of treatment.
Because his case needed a multidisciplinary approach, he and his treating doctor sought the help of a leading expert in head and neck oncology living in another country. The second opinion gave him hope — and ultimately led to treatment more aligned with his needs. Today, his cancer is in remission.
MORE Health provides second opinions for any kind of cancer, including rare cancers. Our relationships with the top academic medical centers for cancer care and leading experts in their fields enable us to match patients with the right specialists. As a result, all parties can work as a team to develop a comprehensive, collaborative diagnosis and avoid the costs of potential complications, overtreatment, and misdiagnosis.
Not only do we benefit patients themselves, but also the companies they work for. When employers offer MORE Health as part of their health benefits, they invest in employees’ health in a powerful way and equip employees to pursue the most effective cancer treatment possible.
