USARAD Holdings Inc., a leading US Joint Commission Accredited teleradiology and specialty telemedicine solutions provider, including SecondOpinions.com®, announced today that in addition to its existing teleradiology services at Mission Bend ER, it is now adding multispecialty second opinion and expert telemedicine services, to the state-of-the-art, 24/7, freestanding ER chain in Houston, Texas.
As a result of this innovative partnership, there will be many benefits to the patient compared to that of a typical hospital emergency room visit including; reduced costs, quicker service and around-the-clock access to top expert physicians in multiple specialties.
