[Comment] Avoiding overuse—the next quality frontier

As nations move toward universal health coverage (UHC), the stakes on quality of care rise. The poorest people in the world can least afford poor quality health care. They do not have the resources to repair the damage when care goes wrong, their development requires a healthy workforce, and money wasted on ineffective or harmful care is money denied to other essential services. Poor quality care damages wealthy nations, too. Few high-income countries have the political will to increase tax rates, and therefore government investments reflect zero sum choices—what public health care gets, public schools and public housing lose.
