The two efficiency measures are:

•    Outpatients who got cardiac imaging stress tests before low-risk outpatient surgery
•    Outpatients with brain CT scans who got a sinus CT scan at the same time

The lower the percentage or number of patients, the better. To read the two news measures in more detail, click here.
