Misdiagnosis can result in delayed treatment or patients receiving the wrong disgnosis or treatment, which can cause serious harm, disability and even death – 30% of annual health care spending in the US, is wasted on unnecessary services and other inefficiencies.
Another aspect of medical errors is inappropriate treatment, which can take several forms. Patients may receive treatment that does not meet the appropriate standards of care or is not supported by clinical evidence.
Studies show, outcomes of patient-initiated second opinions found that almost 62% of opinions yielded a major change in diagnosis, treatment or prognosis.
With the high human and financial cost of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, patients need effective strategies to help manage and mitigate these risks. One strategy is to seek a second opinion when facing a serious diagnosis or recommended surgery. Second opinion services can provide patients with access to experienced specialists to review their case and confirm or refute the diagnosis.
