This is the first in a series of three Academy Health webinars, produced in partnership with The Commonwealth Fund, 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 second webinar will take place on Tuesday 27 October 2015, and the third will tentatively take place on Thursday 12 November 2015.
This webinar will feature the latest evidence and experience on reducing low-value care from experts in Australia, Canada, and the United States. Health care researchers, policy makers, and other stakeholders, both in the United States and around the world, are increasingly concerned with the overuse or misuse of health care resources. Many public and private initiatives are developing and testing strategies to ensure that patients are receiving care that is both high in quality and in value. This webinar will explore current challenges in research and methods, models for reducing low-value care, and strategies for health care systems and payers.
