A coalition of health care organizations in Washington state announced that it received a 34-month grant from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation to expand work on Choosing Wisely, a national initiative that encourages clinicians and patients to discuss which medical tests and procedures may be unnecessary or harmful for patients. The Washington Health Alliance and the Washington State Medical Association are previous grant recipients, with Group Health Cooperative and Swedish Health Services joining them this year.
