Health care leaders recognize care variation reduction as the key to unlocking cost-savings across their organizations. Yet, despite concerted efforts to reach clinical consensus, care standards are often left “sitting on a shelf.” Why?

Additionally, leaders often fail to leave room for comments and iteration on the standard, which can cause clinicians to become frustrated and disengaged.
