Global Health Teleconsultation – Top Specialists

What is teleconsultation?

Global Teleconsultations are available for cancer, bariatric surgery, orthopedics, and serious disease.  Our definition: Regardless of geographic location, teleconsulting is the ability for a patient to collaborate remotely over a secure video with a top specialist to gain a second opinion on a diagnosis or prior to arrival at the destination.

How does our teleconsultation service work?

It’s simple, all you need is a computer, a smartphone, or an electronic tablet.

  • You simply complete an online and secure teleconsultation request and specify your preferred day, time, hospital/clinic, and or surgeon (if known), otherwise, we will assign a top specialist based on your specific request.

  • A patient navigator will confirm availability with the surgeon and/or propose an alternate time.  Your surgeon will review your medical file in advance of your discussion.

  • You receive a link to access to connect via mobile, tablet, or desktop to your surgeon and have a 1:1 discussion.  This is your opportunity to ask your surgeon anything you want.

  • On completion, you will then receive the surgeon's recommendations, confirmed pricing, and a copy of your video transcript.

What are the advantages of teleconsultation?

Teleconsultation services offer you many advantages:

  • Remove the barrier and concern of traveling overseas for surgery by selecting your surgeon in advance

  • Priority waitlist and check-in on the day with no need to do a pre-consultation on arrival avoiding surgeon and traffic delays and jet lag on arrival

  • Speak directly and confidentially 1:1 with your surgeon and get personal feedback and confirmed pricing.

  • Health Teleconsultations can be tax refundable if you have a health or flexible spending account or as long as the physician or specialist consulted is licensed in their jurisdiction.
