UCLA Health signs on to MORE Health’s global second-opinion telemedicine network

July 18, 2019

Why should a patient who doesn’t live near a major medical center lack access to the very best second opinion on a critical, life-threatening illness?

Now MORE Health—a global digital healthcare company with headquarters in both China and the United States—is providing patients, literally from Beijing to Boston, with access to the best physicians in a variety of medical specialties via its cloud-based telemedicine network, the Physician Collaboration Platform.

The process brings together a MORE Health Physician Specialist with the patient’s attending doctor—wherever he or she may be worldwide—to provide an expert medical second opinion and a carefully researched and developed treatment plan.

Already, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City; the George Washington Medical Faculty Associates in Washington, D.C.; the University of Chicago Medicine; the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio; the Boston Children’s’ Hospital, and the Beijing Henghe Hospital have signed on for the program.

And this week, UCLA Health has joined the increasingly prestigious alliance. “UCLA Health has a history of high-quality health care that produces exceptional outcomes. Our incredible faculty from the David Geffen School of Medicine enable us to treat the most complex health care needs,” says Michael Burke, executive director of UCLA Health International Services, in a press release. “We are proud to provide health care services to patients around the world. Our partnership with MORE Health will expand our existing second opinion program and allow us to serve our patients in a more flexible way, from the comfort of their home[s].”

UCLA Health includes four hospitals on two campuses— Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center; UCLA Medical Center-Santa Monica; Mattel Children’s Hospital-UCLA; and Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA—and more than 170 primary care and specialty clinics throughout Southern California. UCLA Health ranks number-one in Los Angeles, number-two in California and number 7 in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018-19 Best Hospitals survey.

“We are pleased to partner with this comprehensive health care institute to provide the best care possible to our patients,” said Hope Lewis, MORE Health’s co-founder and CEO, “UCLA Health offers a welcoming and nurturing environment with best-in-class treatment.”

Since 2013, MORE Health has helped thousands of patients around the world access care in the US. Through this partnership with UCLA Health, patients are able to access even more of the world’s most preeminent doctors and specialists.
