Every day, thousands of doctors, residents and medical students wake up to a Global Morning Report (GMR) case in their inboxes from the Human Diagnosis Project (Human Dx), an open medical resource that aims to empower doctors with collective medical insights from their colleagues around the world. Inspired by the traditional hospital morning report, GMR features the best teaching cases from Human Dx contributors around the world for others to solve online in minutes.
ABIM Foundation is collaborating with Human Dx to utilize GMR as a fun, engaging way to keep physicians up to date with Choosing Wisely recommendations. Through GMR, doctors and students solve cases in a stepwise fashion by updating their differential diagnoses and management plans as findings (e.g., symptoms, physical exams, labs, imaging results, etc.) are revealed. An “Impact” score is awarded to physicians for solving cases. The more efficiently and accurately a physician solves a case, the more Impact is awarded.
Each GMR case is accompanied by relevant teaching points and references that are brief and to the point – easily digestible by a busy physician. The succinct style of Choosing Wisely recommendations makes them a natural fit into this format.
Seiji Hayashi, MD, MPH, Director of Medicine for Human Dx, says Human Dx has been prioritizing creation of GMR cases that address Choosing Wisely recommendations, especially those relevant to primary care specialties.
“Choosing Wisely helps us focus on things that make a difference,” Dr. Hayashi said.
So far, GMR has featured over 30 cases that reference Choosing Wisely recommendations, and Human Dx plans to triple that number in the coming months. To get started with GMR, download the free Human Dx app from the Apple App Store or sign up online. Human Dx is one of eight semi-finalists in the running for the $100 million MacArthur Foundation 100&Change competition.
