Abstract: Overuse of medical tests and treatments wastes health care resources and leads to unnecessary complications, while underuse results in delayed or missed diagnoses and treatment opportunities. Such problems are well recognized and there have been multiple attempts to correct inappropriate diagnostic testing and treatment over the past several decades. However, sustainable solutions have proven to be elusive.
