Jason Buxbaum, MHSA, project manager, V-BID Health; and Robert Dubois, MD, PhD, chief scientific officer, National Pharmaceutical Council, discuss low-value services, their financial impact, what states are doing to address them, and challenges with addressing them.
As conversations surrounding rising healthcare costs persist, the idea of addressing low-value services has caught the attention of health professionals nationwide. Value-Based Insurance Design (V-BID) Health’s Task Force on Low-Value Care has identified a top 5 list of low-value clinical services that can be targeted.
We spoke with Jason Buxbaum, MHSA, project manager, V-BID Health, about which 5 low-value services topped the list, the financial impact they have, and how states are attempting to address them.
Once low-value services are identified, healthcare professionals face another challenge: turning conversation into something actionable. We discussed the challenges with addressing these low-value services with Buxbaum and Robert Dubois, MD, PhD, chief scientific officer, National Pharmaceutical Council.
