List of factors that contribute to Inappropriate Health Care infographic
Patients and healthcare providers can work together to pursue care that improves health outcomes, all the while minimizing harm and unnecessary interventions. If we avoid testing and treating when is not needed, we can focus on doing more of the things that really matter.

If you have any suggestions for changes or additions, or would like to use this graphic in any way, please let me know via email .
