BACKGROUND: Identifying hospitals that are both early and consistent adopters of high-value care can help shed light on the culture and practices at those institutions that are necessary to promote high-value care nationwide. The use of troponin to diagnose acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and not to test for myoglobin or creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), is a high-value recommendation of the Choosing Wisely® campaign. OBJECTIVE: To examine the variation in cardiac biomarker testing and the effect of the Choosing Wisely® troponin-only recommendation for the diagnosis of AMI...

Given the importance of the extracellular medium during tissue formation, it was wise to develop an artificial structure that mimics the extracellular matrix while having improved physico-chemical properties. That is why the choice was focused on gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA), an inexpensive biocompatible hydrogel. Physicochemical and mechanical properties were improved by the incorporation of nanoparticles developed from two innovative fabrication processes: High shear fluid and low frequencies/high frequencies ultrasounds...

Treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) frequently lacks appropriate indication, yet remains prevalent across settings. Numerous guidelines, professional societies, and campaigns such as Choosing Wisely advocate against this low-value practice. Efforts aimed at reducing unnecessary treatment of ASB demonstrate improved costs, and avoidable harm without increased risk of adverse events. We propose an evidence-based implementation guide to aid practitioners in reducing inappropriate treatment of ASB.

Background Many specialty societies have found that neuroimaging in headache is a low-value intervention for benign presentations. This study describes factors that influence Emergency Room (ER) physicians' adherence to Choosing Wisely (CW) recommendations for low-risk headache patients presenting to Calgary's Emergency Departments (EDs). Emergency medicine has yet to address imaging in headache as a CW topic; however, this study may inform that decision. Methods Data were retrospectively collected for all patients presenting to Calgary EDs with headaches from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2016...

The attention of the medical community to the appropriateness of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures has increased in recent years, recognizing the need for a careful use of resources and for avoiding unnecessary and sometimes harmful medical tests, procedures and therapies. Not only healthcare providers, but also public, patients and politicians, should know the consequences of inappropriate decisions and behaviors. Indeed, inappropriateness has clinical (risks), economic (waste of resources), but also ethical implications (i...

Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation in partnership with Consumer Reports that seeks to advance a national dialogue on avoiding wasteful or unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures. The American Association for Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine's (AANEM) Professional Practice Committee (PPC) identified areas in neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine that have the greatest potential for overuse/misuse and provided five recommendations for both patients and physicians to consider before proceeding with the specified test or treatment...

We conducted a simulated clinician-choice experiment, comparing choices and decision-making processes of participants ( N = 688) randomized among four experimental arms: a conventional website reporting only quantitative performance information, a website reporting both qualitative (patient comments) and quantitative information, the second website augmented by a decision aid (labeling of patient comments), and the decision-aided website further augmented by the presence of a trained navigator. Introducing patient comments enhanced engagement with the quality information but led to a decline in decision quality, particularly the consistency of choices with consumers' stated preferences...

Although blood transfusion is a lifesaving therapy for some patients, transfusion has been named 1 of the top 5 overused procedures in US hospitals. As unnecessary transfusions only increase risk and cost without providing benefit, improving transfusion practice is an effective way of promoting high-value care. Most high-quality clinical trials supporting a restrictive transfusion strategy have been published in the past 5 to 10 years, so the value of a successful patient blood management program has only recently been recognized...

"Klug entscheiden" (Choosing Wisely) is an initiative launched by the German Society for Internal Medicine (DGIM) to boost the quality of medical indication by identifying both medical/therapeutic over- and underuse. Twelve specialist societies for internal medicine and DGIM associated societies develop corresponding recommendations which are subsequently evaluated and rejected or approved in a structured procedure by a multidisciplinary commission. Since 2016, 115 positive and negative recommendations have been developed and released for print media, radio and television...

The question of how to improve healthcare quality and the need for patient empowerment and shared decision-making has been subject of political and scientific debate for years. In addition to various quality initiatives, "top lists" summarizing selected recommendations to increase awareness of overuse, spread by means of public campaigns, has become popular on the international level-known as the "Choosing Wisely" initiative. However, the trustworthiness of "top lists", their impact on patient-relevant outcomes, their role in and integration into the context of the various pre-existing approaches to improve healthcare quality and the effects of neglecting under- and misuse are not clear...

Choosing Wisely and Klug Entscheiden are recent physician-triggered campaigns that aim at identifying and reducing blatant over-treatment as well as - a specialty of KE - occurring under-treatment. This paper provides some conceptual and normative analyses of these campaigns' goals and justifications.

"Choosing Wisely" is an initiative of the German Society of Internal Medicine with the aim to provide recommendations for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are of clear medical and scientifically proven benefit, but are rather underused in daily practice. As such, these positive recommendations are indicative of an undersupply. On the other hand, the German Society of Internal Medicine also developed "negative recommendations", pointing out diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are frequently used but for which there is little or no scientific evidence...

The Choosing Wisely Initiative (CWI) started in 2012 follows a proposal by Howard Brody (2010). Using CWI, the US ABIM Foundation continued its work to strengthen medical professionalism. The text describes CWI's development, aims, mission, and dissemination. It discusses some of its limits and problems. An appendix tabulates similarities and differences between CWI and a (2016) subsequent initiative from the German Society of Internal Medicine (DGIM: Klug Entscheiden Empfehlungen/decide wisely recommendations)...

The Choosing Wisely initiative (CWI), a campaign led by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation, promotes doctor-patient communication and reducing waste in healthcare. At present, many of the top 5 lists from the Choosing Wisely Initiative appear to be primarily eminence-based and influenced by self-interest. The implementation of recommendations from these lists may mean taking a step backwards to the time before evidence-based medicine. On the other hand, despite all the challenges that the Choosing Wisely initiatives are currently facing, it is difficult to deny that they also hold great potential in terms of making healthcare systems more efficient and beneficial to patients...

Choosing Wisely recommendations address situations where physicians will have to make decisions about further diagnostic and therapeutic steps. Undergraduate medical education needs to equip students with the foundations on which clinical reasoning skills can be acquired and fostered throughout their clinical career. Teaching these skills usually involves patients (e.g., bedside teaching, electives, clinical attachments) but it can also be delivered in the format of formalised small-group, case-based learning...

Some medical diagnostic and therapeutic interventions are non-beneficial or even harmful. The Choosing Wisely campaign has encouraged the generation of "top five" lists of unnecessary low-value services in different specialist areas. In the USA alone, where the campaign was launched, these lists include a total of 450 evidence-based recommendations. Medical scientific societies in further countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Switzerland and Germany have since initiated Choosing Wisely campaigns...
