ABIM Foundation

Choosing Wisely® is part of a multi-year effort of the ABIM Foundation, along with its partners, to help physicians be better stewards of finite health care resources. It continues the principles and commitments of promoting justice in the health care system through a fair distribution of resources set forth in Medical Professionalism in the New Millennium: A Physician Charter, which states: “While meeting the needs of individual patients, physicians are required to provide health care that is based on the wise and cost-effective management of limited clinical resources.”

Since 1999, the ABIM Foundation has worked toward its mission of advancing medical professionalism into clinical policy and practice. Our work is an ongoing, collaborative process, engaging the health care community—including physicians and physician leaders, medical trainees, consumer organizations and patients, delivery system leaders, payers and policy makers—to build a shared understanding of professionalism and actively advance the tenets of professionalism in practice.
