Abstract

Disinvestment has been defined as the explicit process of cutting funding, either totally or partially, from health technologies deemed of low-value. Studies of geographic variation in medical practice have been suggested to be useful in guiding decisions on disinvestment, as they may identify unwarranted variations in procedure-rates at the population level. This study aimed to determine the utility of these studies.
