I met recently with Evan Falchuk, President of Best Doctors, a company that provides clinical insights to patients who are facing uncertain diagnoses or treatment choices. Best Doctors sells its services as an employee benefit to companies in the US and around the world. When an employee or dependent is diagnosed with a serious illness, they can submit their case to Best Doctors. The company gathers their medical information and consults with its expert network of physicians to review the diagnosis and treatment options. In many cases the patient receives a different diagnosis and treatment plan than what they started with.
Evan and I spoke about how Best Doctors compares with traditional second opinions, the relationship between health insurance and Best Doctors’ services, and the company’s value proposition to employers.May 20, 2008
