WiserTogether, Inc., a healthcare treatment comparison tool, has established a relationship with Best Doctors, Inc., the global health services company that brings together the best minds in medicine to help people get the right diagnosis and treatment plan. This relationship will provide large employers better purchasing value and streamlined communications to members to drive engagement.
Offering WiserTogether's groundbreaking decision support solution, called Wiser Health, alongside a suite of clinical advocacy services from Best Doctors will enable employees to make better-informed medical treatment decisions by having access to the world's leading physicians. Wiser Health helps employees evaluate options based on data about the comparative effectiveness of treatments, use of the treatment options locally by physicians and patients, cost, coverage and personal preferences about care.
"Best Doctors and WiserTogether are complementary solutions. Even though there is more access to information today than ever before, health consumers are still looking for the best treatment options that will work for them and within their budget," said Shub Debgupta, CEO, WiserTogether. "Deploying these solutions together empowers businesses to move away from a fragmented set of underutilized benefits programs to provide a seamless experience for employees. J.R. Simplot is an example of a mutual client to leverage this relationship and deploy combined employee communications."
Wiser Health is the only decision-making tool with technology that compares treatment options using evidence-based clinical outcomes, individual consumer preferences, insurance coverage, cost and popularity of the treatment among physicians and patients in the local community.
When consumers need to make decisions about healthcare, WiserTogether's personalized treatment comparison software enables them to choose the right treatment – most effective in outcome, most personally tailored, and most cost-effective and affordable. The result is improved health and reduced costs.
"Empowered and engaged patients play a vital role in improving health outcomes," noted David Seligman, Chairman and CEO of Best Doctors, Inc. "By bringing together the medical excellence capabilities of Best Doctors and the decision support solutions offered by WiserTogether, employers and members will be empowered with a much better understanding of the health care options and opportunities available to them."
