FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (PRWEB) October 13, 2014
SecondOpinions.com, a division of USARAD Holdings Inc.—a leading US Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and telemedicine solutions provider—and Solstice Benefits, Inc., a private exchange solution provider, have announced a strategic partnership which will enable SecondOpinions.com to promote its corporate programs through the Solstice Marketplace private exchange.
The Solstice Marketplace is a private health exchange solution for brokers and employer groups offering health and ancillary benefits, benefits administration and single source billing. It provides sustainable, scalable growth for corporations, and includes innovative tools to address the changing needs of health care consumers, intuitive online enrollment system for group employees, built-in billing, subscriber support and enrollment videos, and more. Brokers have the flexibility to upload their own plans or choose from preloaded standard plans, including SecondOpinions.com plans. The platform offers competitive rates and enrollment bonus structure.
SecondOpinions.com offers value-added employee wellness benefits, providing consumers with expert second opinions from all medical specialists. They can upload digital images (MRI, CT, etc.) to a HIPAA regulated, secure, confidential platform and receive a report within hours. In addition, doctors in virtually every medical specialty are on standby to provide consultations via phone or video chat. Recent surveys have found that more than three quarters of all employers offer at least one wellness program, and as such are able to attract higher caliber employees.
Given the quality of each company’s services—and the overall goal of employee wellness—the partnership offers an enhanced delivery of valuable wellness benefits for employees at a very low or minimal cost to employers.
“We are thrilled to partner with SecondOpinions.com so our brokers can provide even better quality wellness programs to their groups," said Solstice COO Carlos Ferrera. “Second opinions can help achieve improved medical outcomes, a healthier, more productive workforce and greater employee satisfaction. That’s what we want for our members.”
Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, CEO and founder of SecondOpinions.com, said, “Due to the complexity of medicine, it is essential for corporations and their employees to have a second opinion membership plan. We are indeed excited about our partnership with Solstice that promises to enhance exposure of our critically important services. An educated employee is more likely to seek out the proper medical treatment necessary for improved health care."
