The first statewide report in the nation to measure Choosing Wisely recommendations finds that patients in Washington may be exposed to care that they don’t need – and potential harm. The report offers county-by-county results in Washington State for nine different Choosing Wisely recommendations.

Choosing Wisely is an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation.

The report was made possible through support from the foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
