Value Conversations Series

The ABIM Foundation, in partnership with Consumer Reports, has developed and implemented the Choosing Wisely®campaign to encourage clinicians and patients to engage in conversations aimed at avoiding unnecessary tests and treatments. More than 75 medical specialty societies partnering in Choosing Wisely have collectively published nearly 500 evidence-based recommendations that can be used as critical guideposts to inform these critical conversations help create a culture that recognizes more care does not mean better care.

Costs of Care with the help of The University of Chicago has developed four free, web-based, educational, CME-approved, 15-minute modules to support clinicians in their efforts to deliver high-value health care.
