The U.S. currently spends more than $265 billion annually on unnecessary care. Treatments, tests, and services that — once measured, benchmarked, and analyzed — fall into the category of “potentially harmful, little chance of helping,” according to Dr. Marty Makary in The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care — and How to Fix It. That’s simply too costly to sustain. And too wasteful to justify.
Motive’s uniquely designed appropriateness of care measures help every physician practice wisely. These detailed metrics instantly illustrate the suitability of each medical procedure in any clinical process or situation. Our Appropriate Practice Score is based on what doctors do and what payers pay. It tells doctors how their clinical decision-making compares to their peers.
Dr. Makary is one of more than 600 board-certified, academically affiliated physicians, nurses, and pharmacists across all therapeutic areas in Motive’s network of subject matter experts. These clinical leaders work closely with our informaticists, knowledge engineers, and medical editors. Together, we create the highest-quality and most relevant medical intelligence for outcomes-based care.
