Effect of data sharing in reducing unnecessary procedures

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ayo Kazeem presented a poster on the effects of data sharing in reducing unnecessary knee arthroscopies in the UK private medical sector at the Preventing Overdiagnosis Conference 2019, co-sponsored in Sydney, Australia, by the World Health Organization. 

The challenge of change

In recent years, private medical insurers such as AXA Health have moved from simply ‘paying the bills’ to becoming commissioners of healthcare services, committed to playing an active role in securing cost-effective, quality care for their members.

In practice, that means encouraging providers to follow best (evidence-based) practice – and challenging those who undertake inappropriate or unnecessary investigations and procedures.
