Novus Health Expands its World-Leading Medical Second Opinion Program to Include Greater Support for Mental Health

TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2018 /CNW/ - Novus Health, Canada's leader in health navigation, is expanding its uniquely Canadian Medical Second Opinion program by developing extended support for mental health diagnoses.

Receiving a critical or life-threatening medical diagnosis that requires complex healthcare decisions can be overwhelming. For people dealing with such a diagnosis, having access to a trusted Medical Second Opinion can make all the difference in their treatment and recovery.

Novus Health's Medical Second Opinion program is a trusted solution that empowers individuals with the information they need to make informed decisions about their health—and a cost-effective program that can help organizations stand out from competitors by offering a tangible, professional service to their members, employees and customers. Understanding the unique problems that people face in managing their health and working with them alongside their primary caregivers results in better health outcomes for the individual and for their families.

How the expanded Medical Second Opinion program will support mental wellness
According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), mental illness is a leading cause of disability in Canada. Across the country, access to mental health services is challenging, particularly in isolated areas. What's more, mental illness, like any other illness, can be resistant to standardized treatments, and individuals often need the input of multiple experienced mental health professionals to help get them on the right treatment plan.

At Novus Health, we recognize that all individuals experience their health concerns differently, which is why our programs emphasize personalized, local support. Alongside our suite of proactive health programs, we look forward to offering a Medical Second Opinion program as an additional tool to help our members get on the right path to recovery from their mental health diagnoses.

Support individuals when they need it the most
Novus Health's Medical Second Opinion program is truly Canadian, with an in-house medical team and extensive access to medical specialists across Canada, as well as to medical centres of excellence around the world. Our medical advisory board works with expert specialists who are internationally recognized for their knowledge of the latest medical research and treatment protocols and are committed to evidence-based medicine.

Through our Medical Second Opinion program, individuals diagnosed with a critical or life-threatening illness receive the information and resources they need to make informed decisions about their care, including:

  • A comprehensive review of their medical file from leading medical experts
  • Confirmation of their diagnosis or an alternate diagnosis
  • Insights into advanced knowledge and the best treatment options available for their condition

Give individuals the peace of mind that comes from receiving a valuable Medical Second Opinion from a physician who understands the unique problems individuals face with managing their health.
