When it comes to testing, how much is "enough"?


Budget cuts mean that CCGs and Trusts are scrutinising all spending areas in the search for potential savings – and the spotlight is on diagnostics. Measuring and determining optimum levels of activity and spend is a burden on already-stretched diagnostic departments.

How do you determine what is the appropriate level of testing? Should clinicians be increasing screening tests to detect diseases earlier? Should they be decreasing testing to prevent over-diagnosis and the burden of treatment? How do we manage unsustainable growth?  

This interactive workshop, presented by LTS Health Technology, will discuss metrics for optimal testing and how to work collaboratively with key stakeholders to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
