Fort Lauderdale, FL. (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
USARAD Holdings Inc., a leading U.S. Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider launched SecondOpinions.com one year ago. The service which offers a state-of-the-art, proprietary, web-based consumer platform connecting patients globally to top U.S. physicians in any medical specialty has experienced an exponential growth. Today SecondOpinions.com announced that they are offering complimentary phone medical translation services in 200 languages for consultations in real-time, on-demand, between top American physicians and patients, international doctors and other customers across the globe. Translations are performed by professional interpreters most of whom are medical workers in their native countries and are fluent in English.
Not only will international customers greatly benefit from this new service but this will be invaluable to domestic patients and customers. America has become a multi-cultural mosaic with global roots and hundreds of spoken languages. As a result, many patients in the US only speak their native language or have poor English skills. This will no longer prohibit any patients from communicating with the best possible medical experts.
“We are very pleased to open our services to a broader spectrum of people across the globe who until now, would not have been able to benefit from our unique services because of language barriers,” said Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, CEO and Founder of SecondOpinions.com.
Global customers can now be evaluated by expert physicians from anywhere across the world who are best suited to diagnose specific medical conditions. In addition, two- way translation services of medical records including radiological report interpretations are also available at an affordable price.
“The new translation services have enabled us to precisely communicate with patients in China,” said Dr. Zhentong Liu, a Chinese-American physician that has used the translation service multiple times for his patients living in China. “ Professional interpreters understand and effectively communicate medical terminology which is essential for this type of service,” explained Dr. Liu.
SecondOpinions.com provides customers with expert medical opinions from specialists and subspecialists. Digital images (MRI, CT etc.) upload to a secure, confidential platform and reports received within hours. Doctors in every medical specialty are available to provide consultations via phone or video chat. Studies show second opinions decrease medical errors, save lives, and keeps healthcare costs down by preventing unnecessary surgeries and procedures.
