Summary of the Project:
This study builds on prior work by this team to construct indices of systemic overuse in geographic regions for the Medicare and commercially insured populations and forms the first step in a new phase of work designed to understand systemic overuse and efficiency within individual health systems. This work is expected to contribute to the knowledge base on overuse and has the potential to identify effective strategies to improve value closer to the point of care delivery.
