WHIO Low-Value Care Report 

When patients receive low-value care, meaning care that is not supported by research or is duplicative, they pay more for unnecessary or inadequate care. Not only does low-value care cost patients more money, but it also means higher costs for their self-funded employers. This is a problem because when employers have a higher healthcare spend, they cannot allocate as much of their budget toward other employee benefits, including wages.

The Wisconsin Health Information Organization (WHIO) Low-Value Care Committee recently released a report Achieving Health Care Value in Wisconsin: A Focus on Low Value Care to help Wisconsinites identify low-value care and how to avoid it.
