Measuring over- and underuse in family medicine
In order to reduce overuse and underuse in the healthcare system, it is necessary to define appropriate care according to current knowledge and to measure it. However, measurement is hampered by inadequate political and structural frameworks, limited availability of electronic data and poor data quality. To improve the measurement of over- and underuse in Swiss family medicine, this policy brief recommends i) the development of a comprehensive digital strategy, ii) the strengthening of a data-based quality culture and iii) the support of bottom-up initiatives.
