Society of Hospital Medicine

On behalf of more than 34,000 hospitalists across the country, the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) is proud to support the goals of the ABIM Foundation’s Choosing Wisely® campaign. Hospitalists are at the forefront of making decisions that promote high-quality and high-value care for hospitalized patients. Together, in thousands of hospitals, hospitalists and patients are already making better informed choices about diagnostics and treatments that lead to the best possible care for the patient and limit unnecessary procedures. SHM’s Center for Hospital Center for Hospital Innovation and Improvement has already delivered real measureable performance improvement at more than 300 hospitals nationwide. As the National Quality Forum and Joint Commission’s John M. Eisenberg Award winner for national innovation in patient safety and quality, being a part of the Choosing Wisely campaign is a key component of SHM’s goals to transform health care and revolutionize patient care.
