How do virtual second opinions work?

Children’s Colorado has partnered with 2nd.MD to provide your family with a seamless and convenient virtual second opinion process. Here’s what you can expect from our process:

  1. Once you submit the form above, a 2nd.MD team member will contact you within 24 business hours. They will explain our virtual second opinion process and answer your questions.
  2. You will be provided with a link to our secure payment portal and once payment is confirmed, your 2nd.MD nurse will call and collect your child's medical information.
  3. 2nd.MD will collect your child’s medical records from your provider’s facilities or your patient portal.
  4. Based on your child’s condition or symptoms, we’ll select the best provider for your child’s second opinion and schedule a video consultation.
  5. Our expert will perform a video consultation with you and your child.
  6. After the consultation, our provider will send you a full consultation report.
  7. If you decide to seek in-person care we’ll help ensure a smooth transition of your care.

If our provider feels that your child’s condition isn’t suited for a virtual second opinion, they will contact your 2nd.MD nurse, who will work with our team to schedule an in-person second opinion or explore other care options.

If you have any questions during your virtual second opinion, please contact your 2nd.MD nurse.
