The Archives of Internal Medicine appreciates your support in 2011—made evident in robust submissions of your best work and helpful feedback on what is important to you and your patients.

In this election year, there is increasing recognition of the unsustainability of the trajectory of our present health care costs. Although opinions vary widely on what to do, there is widespread agreement that we are not getting good value for our expenditures. Although we spend more on health care by far than any other country, we do far worse than lower-spending countries in many measures of good health, including life expectancy and infant mortality. As part of the Archives ’ efforts to increase knowledge and stimulate discussion of higher-value, patient-focused care, we encourage your participation in the “Less Is More” series, which highlights areas of health care with no benefit and definite harms. We welcome submissions of original research as well as the perspectives and observations of patients and physicians. We encourage you to help “be the change” by examining and changing your own practice as outlined in the Top 5 lists1 and participating in the Choosing Wisely campaign through your professional society (www.choosingwisely.org).
