Project status: 
Active

This project seeks to characterise the predictors of inappropriate, high cost healthcare services and identify strategies to promote the use of appropriate, cost-effective care in a private health insurance setting in Australia. This project has been funded by the Hospital Contribution Fund of Australia (HCF) and utilises their membership data of approximately 1.5 million members over a 5-year period. The study was initiated in 2015 and findings are expected in 2017.
