Maine Quality Counts Publishes new "Choosing Wisely" Toolkit for Employers

Maine Quality Counts is working to improve the health of all Maine people (and beyond) by transforming the way healthcare is delivered. We know a “job well done” is only possible when your workplace is healthy and happy – your organization’s success depends on the full strength of your team.

With costs for healthcare coverage and services continuing to rise at nearly twice the rate of inflation, we believe that consumers/ employees need to be more strategic and proactive when seeking healthcare services.

As an employer, YOU can help give your employees the tools they need to navigate today’s complex healthcare system.

The digitally accessible Choosing Wisely® Implementation Toolkit for Employers - “Using Choosing Wisely Tools to Empower Employees” provides resources for your employees, as both patients and consumers, to choose health care that’s high-value and right for them. 

Access the no cost Toolkit now to help them and you choose wisely!

The Choosing Wisely initiative is part of a national and growing global movement to create conversations between health care providers and patients to reduce unnecessary use of tests, treatments and procedures.  It is an initiative of the ABIM Foundation and has spread to 19 other countries.

Additional Choosing Wisely information can be found at: www.mainequalitycounts.org/choosingwisely
