It’s no secret that there’s a lot of wasteful spending in healthcare, and patients have become increasingly frustrated by this as their insurance premiums have skyrocketed. Yet unnecessary procedures are still performed every day in the U.S. — and sometimes patients are harmed as a result.
MedPage Today‘s Enterprise & Investigative Reporting team needs your help. We want to know what you see as the most unnecessary medical procedures today. What screenings are useless? What surgeries don’t need to be done?
If these procedures pose risk to patients, we want to hear about that, too.
Could you help us by answering a few brief questions below? We won’t share your responses with anyone. We may follow up with you as we report our stories.
We’d greatly appreciate your support as we, like you, hope to improve healthcare by keeping needed dollars in patients’ pockets and preventing harm.
