An exciting new approach to comprehensive health care is now available to British Columbians.
Based in Victoria, the Options Health System offers an all-encompassing brand of controlled medical care, providing integration of professional health services on every level.
That means patients enjoy same-day service from their primary care physician. It means 30-minute appointments, enabling doctors to spend the maximum time to get to the root of every complaint. It can include laboratory testing, MRIs and surgery.
Dr. Jamie Grimes, an OHS director, puts it this way: "Options Health System offers patients a customized, collaborative prevention and wellness model for health-care delivery that transfers control back to the individual."
The Options Health System was designed in response to unique challenges faced by an over-taxed system of Canadian public health care.
Anyone who reads the daily papers knows that B.C.'s overworked doctors are suffering from burnout.
Many have left the province in frustration. Options Health System is here to fill that gap, providing patients with the finest doctors, care strategies and innovations available.
Options Health Systems is committed to upholding the values of the Canada Health Act, while integrating a unique health and wellness system intended to ease pressure on the public system.
"We're filling a void. We believe that by providing people with a proactive option to health and wellness, we can greatly improve our patients' quality of life," explains Dr. Grimes.
"We're bridging the health-care gap between all public and private options," he continues. "Our doctors utilize the public system whenever it's necessary."
However, Options Health System goes the extra mile, placing particular emphasis on preventive care. Patients are encouraged to visit OHS physical therapists whenever needed, with minimal waiting time. They meet with nutritionists and naturopaths on a regular basis and learn the benefits of regular exercise.
New members undergo extensive medical and fitness evaluation procedures, including diagnostic testing as needed.
"Then we prepare a report of findings in conjunction with our primary-care physicians. Our doctors then put together a multi-year health-care plan for each patient," Grimes explains.
Corporate clients have their own reasons for embracing the Options Health System. Grimes cites the example of an employer who sees a worker sustain a job-related injury.
"As it is now, employees wind up on Worker's Compensation for six months before they can see a specialist," Grimes says. "Then it's another two-month wait for surgery. Meanwhile, the company is paying 66 per cent of his wage."
With OHS, however, the patient undergoes diagnostic testing and all treatment options are presented. That means significant savings.
