Overtreatment – the provision of health care that we know can’t possibly help a patient – is a big problem in the American health care system. Host John Barkett leads a panel discussion on how physicians can focus on cutting down overtreatment when deciding on course of care for patients on The Business of Health Care. Panelists include: Daniel B. Wolfson, Executive Vice President and COO of the ABIM Foundation (American Board of Internal Medicine); Dr. Cynthia (Daisy) Smith, Vice President of Clinical Programs for the American College of Physicians; and Dr. Akshat Kumar, Attending Physician at Penn Medicine and current MBA Candidate at the Wharton School.
