Personalized Care

Personalized care is the next generation of healthcare, shifting the focus from reactive to proactive. This type of healthcare uses patient data and risk factors to tailor preventive screenings, recommendations for dietary changes and medical procedures, and more.

Providing personalized care means taking the time to understand each member’s needs and concerns. This can lead to better outcomes for everyone involved.

For example, a doctor may be able to use a patient’s genetic and other molecular information to proactively identify risky behaviors and predispositions to certain diseases. This can prevent illness and reduce medical costs for that patient in the future.

Personalized care is a major part of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) Long Term Plan. It brings six different parts of the NHS system together, based on a growing evidence base: shared decision making; personalised care and support planning; enabling choice; social prescribing; community based support; and personal health budgets.

Expert Medical Opinion

An expert medical opinion is a critical component of any medical malpractice or personal injury case. It helps attorneys understand the intricacies of their cases and ensure that they are able to win.

Grand Rounds, which has raised $11 million to date from Venrock and Harrison Metal, assembles a network of the top 0.1 percent of medical experts across a wide range of specialties. It then uses an algorithm to evaluate their training, the strength of their institution and their research and publication records.

The company’s staff physicians then connect with patients, getting their medical records and asking key questions. Then they use a matching algorithm to match them with the right doctor.

The company markets its system to employers — especially self-insured ones that cover employee medical costs directly — on the bet that it will save them money. It focuses on high-cost cases, such as renal cell carcinoma, mitral valve repair and spinal stenosis, rather than run-of-the-mill conditions.
