Market Segmentation:

As per the research analysis, the medical second opinion market is segmented by disorder into cancer, diabetes, cardiac disorders, neurological disorders, ocular disorders, and others. By service provider, the market is further segmented into hospitals, medical second opinion providing companies, health insurance companies, others

On the basis of the disorder, the neurological segment accounted for a share of more than 10% in 2020.

According to Parkinson’s Foundation, around 25-30% of Parkinson’s disorder is misdiagnosed, which is a very high number. Similarly, around 69% of bipolar patients receive misdiagnosis initially. Even well-trained internists and general neurologists can have trouble diagnosing Parkinson’s disease, especially if they’ve had little experience with the disorder. Parkinson’s Foundation suggests that people diagnosed with Parkinson’s consider getting a second opinion from a neurologist specializing in movement disorders and has extensive experience with Parkinson’s. Similarly, in depression, a second opinion from a psychiatrist is always suggested.
