Join our own Thomas Prewitt, M.D., director of the HORNE Healthcare Delivery Institute, for plain talk about how we’ve reached critical mass in health care by buying into unnecessary care. Dr. Prewitt walks us through memorable examples of how unnecessary tests and procedures put patients at risk and drive up costs.
- The challenges physicians face to stop “over-treating” patients
- What we as patients need to do to take ownership of our personal health care
- How our healthcare focus needs to shift from rescue-care to overall patient health
