In this clip, Cole Manship discusses how Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) actually first started with an international second opinion program, which later expanded to include domestic patients. Cole shares that MSK involves the patient's local treating physician. Nikki DeLucia describes how Yale Medicine uses asynchronous written opinions to help international patients first understand if they should travel for a procedure or treatment.
Dr. Rasmussen shares that the Cleveland Clinic also offers their program globally. He tells us that legal is involved in the licensure process, but also states candidly that many doctors are already providing consults informally and that 'lawyers should take a deep breath.'
Panelists go on to discuss the challenges of gaining internal buy-in, raising awareness for reimbursement and anecdotes showing just how much progress remote consults and second opinions have made in the past few years.
