What is the one thing patients can do to improve their chances of good health outcomes, no matter their condition? It’s more simple than you may think. Be a partner with your primary care doctor.

Too often patients consider it their doctor’s job to keep them healthy.  They forget that after they leave the office, the job falls to the patient.  To do the job, a patient needs to understand their doctor’s treatment plan and treatment goals. That means ask questions, get clarifications, and know what to look for as signs of progress or trouble.

YourHealthMatters.org was designed to help patients and doctors work together. It is also a tool that patients can use to see how their doctor compares to other doctors in treating specific conditions such as diabetes.   We have a new video that explains how it work.  We hope it resonates with you whether you are a doctor or a patient. Great things happen when we are working together.
