Leave a comment

CW-Town-Hall-FB-Post-ClickHereHave you ever wondered how much a test or procedure will cost? Or have you ever questioned if a test or treatment that your healthcare provider ordered was needed?

You are not alone.

That is why Eastern Area Agency on Aging, Penobscot Community Heath Care and us — St. Joseph Healthcare has teamed up with Maine Quality Counts Organization to educate the public about the Five Most important questions to ask your healthcare team.

The Choosing Wisely campaign is an initiative of the ABIM (American Board of Internal Medicine.)
The primary focus is to help healthcare providers and patients engage in meaningful conversations regarding the overuse of procedures and tests. In turn, patients and healthcare providers can work more successfully together to make smart and effective care choices.
