EHR data useful for measuring low-value clinical service overuse
EHR data can be useful for accurately measuring overused clinical services and low-value testing, according to a recent study published in the American Journal of Managed Care. A research team extracted performance information on 13 healthcare services. The services were identified by the Choosing Wisely campaign using EHR data at a large physician practice group from 2011 to 2013. The Choosing Wisely campaign identifies health services that are frequently ineffectual to help providers cut back on unnecessary testing.
