  1. […] To further awareness of the campaign among clinicians and patients, the ABIM Foundation has launched a Choosing Wisely app.  The new app makes the over 500 specialty society recommendations available at the touch of an iPhone screen. Through the new app, clinicians are able to search the recommendations using keywords, as well as filter by specialty, age, setting and service (e.g., imaging, medication, treatment, lab, test). Patient materials are organized similarly, by health topic (e.g., “common cold” or “back pain”), medical specialty, society and age. The recommendations are linked to any relevant patient-friendly resources, and both can be shared via text or email with colleagues or patients.  Read more about Choosing Wisely here. […]
