NEW YORK and ASPEN, Colo., July 14 (PRNewswire-FirstCall) — A report issued by Thomson Reuters — and shared in part at the Aspen Ideas Festival on July 10 — indicates that a combination of better coordinated public and private sector care; stronger patient awareness of health risks and wellness; and application of improved information systems to eliminate fraud and abuse could lead to a 50 percent reduction in wasteful spending in healthcare, saving $3.6 trillion over the next decade. The study, "A Path to Eliminating $3.6 Trillion in Wasteful Healthcare Spending," is available at www.ThomsonReuters.com.
