2011 ABIM Foundation Forum - Choosing Wisely: The Responsibility of Physicians, Patients and the Health Care Community in Building a Sustainable System
Principles Guiding Wise Choices offers a broad view of how physicians—along with patients, hospitals, health systems, the medical education and training system, medical groups and health policy organizations—can engage in the effort to provide higher quality care that acknowledges our society's finite health care resources. They were developed through a series of workgroups and meetings convened by the ABIM Foundation.
Task Force on Managing Resources
The goal of this task force is to develop recommendations about ways to engage physicians in the management of health care resources, while preserving the health and safety of their patients. It was created in response to the continued extraordinary growth in health care spending, and in light of the Physician Charter’s call for physicians to act as stewards of society’s health care resources.
