Indicators of Successful Awareness, Ownership, and Action on Overuse

Sustainability relies on care teams stepping up to take ownership of reducing medical overuse. When a system prioritizes and continually supports this work, nurtures a culture of trust and ongoing communication among providers and frontline staff, and equips providers with reliable data, care teams will become the drivers of ongoing overuse-reduction efforts, ensuring sustainability. This kind of culture change can address problems of underuse, misuse, and overuse equally well.
