Study maps hotspots of low-value care use at individual health systems

Researchers estimate that up to $101 billion in health care spending is wasted each year due to over-treatment or the delivery of “low-value care.” Low-value care includes a wide array of tests and treatments that are medically unnecessary and for which the potential for harm outweigh the potential for benefit. While researchers have charted the ongoing use of low-value care on national and regional levels, little research exists on how health systems across the country use low-value care and how they compare to each other.
