Best Doctors Inc, a medical consultation service that empowers employees to take an active role in their medical decisions, announced that Schneider National Inc has made the Best Doctors benefit available to its associates and their dependents. Through Best Doctors, Schneider National associates and their dependents now have access to advanced medical expertise when they are uncertain about their diagnosis or treatment.
The Best Doctors benefit will allow approximately 13,000 eligible Schneider National associates and dependents to have their medical cases evaluated by expert physicians, who will conduct a thorough analysis of a member’s case based on all their medical records, full history, and tests. After the review, the Schneider associate receives a report summarizing the expert’s findings that can be used with their treating physician to take the right next steps.
Best Doctors helps companies and organizations reduce healthcare costs by arming its members with information that will get them on the right clinical path without wasting time, energy, and money on inappropriate treatments. A Best Doctors analysis of clinical cases warranting review by their experts uncovered alarming medical oversight including:
•Wrong treatments occurred 61% of the time.
•Insufficient work-ups reported in 31% of cases.
•Treatment efficacy shortfalls in 25% of cases.
•Misinterpretation of pathology or diagnostic tests occurred in 12% of cases.
