The Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement Campaign

Physicians and patients making wise health choices together

Welcome

The Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) is pleased to support the Choosing Wisely campaign, which was developed by the ABIM Foundation (American Board of Internal Medicine) to encourage physicians and patients to have discussions about medical tests and procedures that may be unnecessary and, in some instances, can cause harm.

As one of nearly 60 communications partners nationwide, ICSI is helping to spread the word to our members, sponsors and other stakeholders about these easy-to-use educational materials for physicians to use in their offices and give to patients. Many are also available in Spanish.

For more information, contact us here.
