The Colorado Medical Society has enthusiastically embarked on the Choosing Wisely Colorado campaign. Choosing Wisely Colorado is a physician-centered statewide program designed to bring the national Choosing Wisely campaign closer to home. There is a nationwide call to reduce medically unnecessary health care in an effort to improve quality of care, reduce potential for avoidable patient harm, and to help control health care costs. Choosing Wisely Colorado will provide tools to assist physicians with the challenging patient conversations regarding discouraging medically unnecessary tests or procedures.
