MORE HealthMORE Health provides patient access to the best physicians in the world when they are needed the most: when patients are faced with a critical, potentially life-changing illness. Our collaborative approach puts the patient at the center of the process by connecting their attending physician with Physician Specialists to jointly develop a diagnosis and treatment plan. Our service can be offered as an employer-provided supplemental benefit, or as an employee-paid voluntary benefit. In addition to increasing the quality of healthcare delivered, we also decrease the cost of healthcare to businesses, by minimizing unnecessary overtreatment and by reducing waste due to the treatment of misdiagnosed conditions.
