A physician group at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center compared their procedures and policies against best practices and reduced use of several that were wasteful or in some cases inappropriate, including calcium blood tests, nebulizers after 24 hours and stress ulcer prophylaxis in the ICU. The work by the High Value Care Committee has saved the hospital money, and the group now has four more projects on the Choosing Wisely Campaign's Top 5 list.
