Medical group targets unnecessary tests
Modern Healthcare

Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group is among a handful of providers nationwide selected to participate in an ongoing effort to reduce the use of unnecessary and ineffective medical treatments.

Working under guidelines from the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, Rees-Stealy will spend the next three years monitoring usage of five tests and procedures shown to be regularly overused in health care today. The health provider’s project will encompass 160,000 patients.
