[MMA News Now, Oct. 3, 2013]
The MMA, the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement and the Minnesota Health Action Group have partnered to create Choosing Wisely® Minnesota, a collaboration to help Minnesota physicians and patients talk about medical tests and procedures that are often used but may not be necessary and may in some cases cause harm.
All three entities received grants from the ABIM Foundation earlier this year to help promote the Choosing Wisely campaign in Minnesota. The first outcome of the partnership is a new consumer-oriented website
with Consumer Reports Health, another partner in the Choosing Wisely initiative.
The website is designed to help patients “work with your physician to make wise choices about the care and treatments you receive.”
