About the discussion

 

Research has identified that low-cost, high-volume health services contribute the most to unnecessary health spending. These services include tests, procedures, and medications that are routinely used despite limited evidence of benefit. The efficiency of healthcare systems is based on reduced quantity of low-value care for improving both health outcomes for patients. In this webinar, we will cover the questions around the low cost, high-volume health services and quantity of low-value care in Australian public health systems.
