Choosing Wisely RI
The Choosing Wisely RI campaign promotes productive conversations between patients and doctor--conversations that research shows produce the right level of care and go a long way towards eliminating tests, procedures and medications that provide, little, if any benefit. The campaign is organized and promoted by the Rhode Island Business Group on Health (RIBGH) and draws on the expertise of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation. While we provide materials that enable patients to have informed conversations with their doctors and other health care providers, we do not provide any individual medical advice.
Choosing Wisely provides employees free-of-charge access to online tools developed by ABIMF and their 80+ Specialty Society partners.
· Over 110 online, easy to read, evidence-based materials that can be downloaded and printed.
· 550+ medical recommendations for tests and procedures to avoid.
· 5 Questions to Ask Your Doctor Wallet Cards to remind employees of the important question to ask when being prescribed a test or treatment.
The Choosing Wisely Mobile Phone App for Apple and Android phones gives employees the chance to view the Choosing Wisely materials and recommendations on their phones - possibly when they are in their physician's office!
