Description

In Germany, unnecessary diagnoses and operations are carried out. Superfluous medical services are associated with burdens and dangers for patients. They also waste valuable resources in the health care system that are lacking for the necessary treatment. According to recent research by the Bertelsmann Stiftung, many causes of overuse are responsible. Our current SPOTLIGHT Healthcare summarizes the most important findings.
