Choosing Wisely: Implementing Quality Improvement Projects addressing Choosing Wisely Topics
Mounting evidence shows that the American healthcare system costs too much for the results it achieves in terms of patient outcomes and access. Many different parts of this system need attention, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. However, the inpatient / hospital environment is a “high intensity” healthcare delivery setting, and the “Choosing Wisely” initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation (ABIMF) offers a list of low value healthcare practices which make great targets for improvement efforts.
The Society of Hospital Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
