Call to Action: Reduce Waste in the US Health Care System

The IHI Leadership Alliance believes that eliminating “waste” in health care is essential to providing care at an affordable cost. To that end, the Alliance Waste Workgroup has developed an audacious aim: Systematically and proactively identify and eliminate 50 percent of non-value-added waste in the US health care system by 2025. Chaired by MemorialCare Health System Chief Transformation Officer, Helen Macfie, and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. James Leo, this Alliance workgroup is calling on health systems and providers to commit to a Call to Action to do our part to reduce waste in the US health care system.
