Choosing Wisely Campaign
RCMA endorses and supports the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Choosing Wisely Campaign®.
The goal of the campaign is to reduce waste in the health care system and avoid risks associated with unnecessary treatment. It calls upon leading medical specialty societies and other organizations to identify tests or procedures commonly used in their field whose necessity should be questioned and discussed with patients.
The effort has garnered the participation of over 70 medical specialty societies
who have published more than 400 recommendations of overused tests and treatments that clinicians and patients should discuss.
