  • Hospital-employed physicians more likely to order unneeded MRIs, study finds

    Becker's Hospital Review - 05/05/2021

    The study — led by researchers from Boston-based Northeastern University, Stonehill College in Easton, Mass., and Boston University — is based on commercial health insurance claims from the Massachusetts All Payer Claims Database, as well as Medicare claims data and data from health plans. Data was collected for MRI referrals for three conditions — uncomplicated lower back pain, nontraumatic knee pain without joint effusion, and nontraumatic shoulder pain without joint effusion — for 2009 through 2016.
