The Florida Health Care Coalition Campaign

Getting to Better Care and Improved Outcomes: Helping Employees to Choose Wisely


Welcome to Florida Health Care Coalition’s (FLHCC) Choosing Wisely resource site. Together with Consumer Reports and Choosing Wisely, FLHCC will continue to lead the charge for better quality health care for our communities. In order for consumers and providers to make Florida the best place to receive health care, we must stay informed, utilizing the most current information available.

The Choosing Wisely Initiative is intended to spark conversation between patients and providers about overly-used medical tests, treatments, and procedures to ensure the right care is delivered at the right time.

As a partner in Choosing Wisely, Consumer Reports supports this effort by creating patient-friendly materials that can be downloaded and printed for reference before planning a physician visit. As a campaign partner, FLHCC will engage its members and the community by providing useful information generated by this initiative.

Together we can make a difference and get to better care and outcomes!
