Universal Health Care Foundation is proud to partner with the Connecticut Choosing Wisely Collaborative (CCWC), a diverse multi-stakeholder group that is committed to the widespread adoption of Choosing Wisely in Connecticut.
The Choosing Wisely campaign is a national initiative sponsored by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation and Consumer Reports. Choosing Wisely promotes informed patient-provider communication to improve health care practice and prevent unnecessary care and costs. It fosters understanding and conversation between clinicians and patients to help them choose care that is:
- Truly needed
- Free from harm
- Based on recommended guidelines
- Not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received
