Medical Confidence™ healthcare services now available across Canada
Medical Confidence™ is proud to announce its expansion of its healthcare services across all Canadian provinces. This expansion includes adding over 2,000 top doctors to its existing network, bringing their top doctor network to more than 3,000 doctors covering more than 350 subspecialties. Medical Confidence’s™ network took more than three years to build, vetting each physician by a long set of criteria to determine excellence from education and experience to patient reviews. Doctors cannot pay to be part of this list and access to the database, including full biographies and contact information, is available to the public and physicians.
Additionally, the company offers two critical services helping individuals and doctors across Canada access the best minds for their and their patient’s healthcare conditions. Studies have shown there is significant frustration by family practitioners and specialists in the current referral system largely stemming from poor communication and lack of information sharing. The Patient Advocate Find a Doctor service supplies a registered nurse who will work with individuals to match them with the most appropriate physician from the company’s Top Doctor network. The service also includes scheduling the earliest possible appointment and preparation for the meeting.
“A typical doctor visit is only about 15 minutes,” says company President Angela Johnson. “People should be as prepared for a medical appointment as they would be for a job interview. This includes understanding how to accurately and efficiently communicate medical history, showing up with all the necessary tests completed, and so on. This way, the limited time with the specialist is about diagnosis and next steps. This is what it means to truly be an advocate for your own health and our service makes these best practices accessible to the public.”
The Medical Detective service is for people suffering from an undiagnosed, complex or chronic illness, or questioning their diagnosis. This provides a hand selected medical detective team consisting of a member of the Patient Advocate service and a panel of doctors including related specialists from the Top Doctor network. The medical team deconstructs the patient’s medical case, performs a comprehensive assessment including reviewing the diagnosis and treatment plan, making recommendations, and providing answers to the individual’s medical questions. The service is confidential and structured to complement and supplement the care of the patient’s current doctor.
