Finance is one of the most visible industries in America, but the financial sector faces unique challenges. To address the ongoing pressures, financial services firms are often forced to downsize and cut benefits, putting them at a disadvantage in both attracting new talent and keeping their employees satisfied. At the forefront of this issue is also the question of quality in medical care. Medical uncertainty is dangerous and wasteful. In the United States, a third of health care spending—equaling almost $800 billion a year—is wasted on unnecessary services, missed prevention opportunities and inefficiently delivered services.

In our newest Industry Spotlight, we go over the challenges of medical uncertainty in the financial sector, the value of Best Doctors in the industry and case studies from clients and members of Best Doctors.

White Paper: Ensuring Medical Quality and Improving Outcomes

White Paper Cover for BlogThe higher cost doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality. In fact, misdiagnosis is rampant in the medical world, affecting hundreds of thousands of people each year.

It’s so common the Institute of Medicine (IOM) reported that most Americans will encounter at least one diagnostic error in their lifetime, sometimes with severe consequences to their mental or physical health. Recent studies have found medical error causes up to 440,000 deaths in the United States. In Canada, misdiagnosis accounts for up to 60,000 deaths per year at its highest estimate—equaling over 20 percent of the country’s total annual deaths.

Though much effort in the medical world has been focused on improving that quality, some care still lags far behind what it should be. Faced with this conundrum, employers are struggling to find the balance between medical care that is both cost-effective and efficient.

Our newest white paper explores the relationship between cost and medical quality, how to identify the top quality medical providers and our recommendations for improving medical quality in your programs.
