Study: 5 unnecessary procedures in emergency care
A top-five list of emergency medicine procedures that are of low value and could help control costs if providers do not order them was developed as part of a published study. The cost of medical care in the U.S. is growing at an unsustainable rate and the tests, treatments and hospitalizations that come from emergency department care are expensive, researchers noted in background information for the study, which was published Feb. 17 on the website of JAMA Internal Medicine.
