While research shows that physicians are responsible for up to 85% of quality and cost decisions, the majority of physicians are often not equipped with the appropriate tools to impact unnecessary care variation. With this in mind, Geisinger Health System in 2006 launched ProvenCare, an ongoing effort to operationalize evidence-based medicine and improve value for patients. During this presentation, Dr. Michael Suk and Jun Amora will discuss how Geisinger has achieved outsized results in their clinical variation reduction efforts by leveraging strong physician partnerships, bolstered by clinical evidence and data.
