The Take Control of Your Health website is intended to help you get the information and confidence to manage your health and that of family members. You need to be an informed and involved partner with your doctor when making decisions about the need for various tests, procedures, drugs, and the use of other medical providers and facilities. Unless you have certain medical symptoms or conditions, not all tests, drugs and procedures are appropriate for you. Also, not all physicians and hospitals offer the same level of quality, safety or costs. You need to choose and shop wisely. Your health choices are as important as your other purchases.
The materials and other information presented on this website are complied from various objective, credible sources and initiatives, including those developed by Consumer Reports, the ABIM Foundation, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, health plans, pharmaceutical firms, voluntary groups and other organizations.
