About This Webinar

With a heightened focus on health care affordability, initiatives to improve health outcomes while reducing the cost of care have never been more important. At the same time, the transition to a virtual world has accelerated members’ expectations to be met where, how and when they want to engage.

New strategies are emerging to tackle rising health spend, innovate for the needs of today's health care consumer and more effectively manage the health of populations. A key opportunity coming into focus for payers, providers and patients is addressing misdiagnosis, which is both common and costly. With estimates that misdiagnosis results in $65 million in avoidable costs for every 100,000 members, the human and financial benefits of greater certainty about a diagnosis or treatment plan are clear – particularly for conditions such as cancer, musculoskeletal conditions and heart disease.

Virtual programs are increasingly removing access barriers to the nation’s top medical expertise, uncovering the extent to which potential diagnosis changes or treatment plan modifications can provide value for patients managing chronic conditions.

This program will discuss how health insurance providers can save on health care costs and engage their members by offering virtual access to top specialists for second opinions on a wide range of conditions and their treatment.

Attendees Will Learn About

  • The incidence and impact of misdiagnosis for conditions that are top drivers of health care costs
  • Reducing the risk of overtreatment or undertreatment to more effectively support members’ health
  • How providing direct virtual access to expert physicians can empower members on the path to improved health outcomes and lower costs
