Ishani Ganguli MD, MPH is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and a primary care physician at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She received her AB, MD, and MPH from Harvard University and completed internal medicine/primary care residency and health policy and management fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. Her research focuses on the value of ambulatory and primary care, the consequences of low-value care, and how health care policies and payment/delivery models shape health outcomes and spending. Dr. Ganguli is an Associate Editor at JAMA Network Open and writes about health care for publications including The Boston Globe and The Washington Post.
A cascade of care is a seemingly unstoppable succession of medical services of uncertain value that are particularly problematic when they stem from low-value tests and/or incidental findings. Dr. Ganguli will describe the scope of the problem, efforts to quantify and understand drivers of cascades, and interventions to mitigate them.
