Choosing Wisely

Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation

The goal of Choosing Wisely is to encourage conversations between physicians and patients about the overuse of tests and procedures and support physician efforts to help patients make smart and effective care choices.

The City of Albuquerque is participating in the Choosing Wisely® campaign September 2015 through August 2016.  It brings several passionate groups together to help physicians, patients and other health care stakeholders talk about the overuse of health care resources in the U.S. More than thirty national organizations representing medical specialists, as well as Consumer Reports and a number of consumer-focused organizations, are working with the ABIM Foundation to create a set of recommendations for physicians and patients to talk about together.
