Choosing Wisely® is a national campaign developed by the ABIM Foundation and supported by leading medical specialty societies to help guide conversations between patients and clinicians about whether a medical test or procedure treatment is truly necessary.
The Choosing Wisely campaign offers information and resources for clinicians and patients, created by the ABIM Foundation in partnership with Consumer Reports, about common tests and procedures that will help you have important conversations with your physician.

Part of the ABIM Foundation’s national Choosing Wisely® campaign, the statewide campaign encourages doctors and patients to make healthcare choices that are evidence-based, efficient, safe, and truly necessary.
