Seventeenth Annual Scientific Session
SUNDAY, October 24; Washington, DC

This panel will focus on de-implementation, including appropriateness measurement, identification of factors contributing to ongoing unnecessary use of low-value tests or treatments, and interventions/strategies that reduce low-value care.


This panel will highlight use of predictive analytics and artificial intelligence in surgical care. Topics will include natural language processing, imaging analysis, and predictive model development, as well as integration of these tools into health care delivery.


We currently plan to host our annual meeting in-person at a site in Washington DC, but are prepared again to move to a virtual format if needed. Hopefully, the majority of the population will have been vaccinated at this point, and COVID-19 case rates will allow us to convene in person.
