Choosing Health Care Wisely in Maine
Choosing Wisely in Maine is an initiative that is put out by the Foundation. It will help physicians and patients work together to question if they really need certain tests. The medical field is overrun with patients that request tests that are actually not meaningful to them.
Medical funding and resources could be better spent elsewhere with a little bit of forethought. This kit is a media kit that will include many items. It has a PDF entitled “Five Questions to Ponder.” Additionally, there is a list of recommendations being set forth. This document is also in PDF format.
Finally, the kit contains two webinars. One webinar is the series and the other is a forum that helps with initiating these conversations in the medical community.
The entire initiative is aimed at improving the overall health care system in America. By making smarter choices, the entire system overall will benefit.
