American Society of Nephrology

The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) is pleased to join other leading societies in participating in the ABIM Foundation’s Choosing Wisely® campaign. ASN is a not-for-profit organization of nearly 14,000 physicians, scientists and other health professionals dedicated to leading the fight against kidney disease. Foremost among ASN’s goals is ensuring the highest quality of care for the nearly 30 million Americans with kidney disease. Achieving this goal requires that clinicians, scientists and patients work together to determine appropriate, patient-centered treatments. ASN believes that highlighting tests and procedures that are seldom useful — or even potentially harmful — will enable nephrologists and their patients to make more informed decisions, and promote the most cost-effective use of health care resources. ASN is proud to partner with the ABIM Foundation to reduce unnecessary tests and procedures, improve the quality of care for all patients and lower health care costs nationwide.
