International Roundtable to Advance Physician Leadership on Overuse


Building on the Choosing Wisely® campaign, which has gained significant traction in the United States, an international collaboration of experts would compare the broader structural and systemic issues behind overuse and waste in health care systems, and, work jointly across countries to reduce waste and improve care on the front lines.  With the endorsement of professional bodies in each country, this effort would build momentum for changing provider behavior and could powerfully use “Professionalism” (i.e. nonfinancial incentives) as a tool in the Incentives 2.0 Toolbox to change provider behavior. This initiative would also enable the U.S. to benchmark performance against other countries and identify overuse and waste, providing a potential opportunity for reining in health care costs.
