Medical Care When Memory Fails

Continuity is an important aspect of care—possibly the single most valuable aspect—that we can offer today’s growing number of patients with dementia.

Low-Value Care in Medicaid and Commercially Insured Populations

In this statewide study of selected low-value services, moderate proportions of Medicaid and commercially insured patients received care that was likely to provide relatively little clinical benefit. Among qualifying Medicaid patients, 14.9% received a low-value service during 2013 compared with 11.4% of qualifying patients with commercial insurance. No consistent association was found between insurance type and low-value care. http://spr.ly/6262Bqn8r
