Health care researchers, policymakers, and others, in the United States and around the world, are increasingly concerned with the overuse or misuse of health care resources.
Join AcademyHealth and The Commonwealth Fund for a webinar this Thursday, September 3, that will feature the latest evidence and experience on reducing low-value care from experts in Australia, Canada, and the U.S. Panelists will explore challenges in research and methods, models for reducing low-value care, and promising strategies for health care systems. The discussion will be moderated by AcademyHealth's Lisa Simpson.
This is the first in a series of three webinars focused on high-priority topics in system transformation for which there is substantial international innovation and a learning opportunity for both U.S. and non-U.S. audiences. The webinar is free for AcademyHealth members and $50 for non-members.
