Special Initiatives Managing My Own Health

Managing My Own Health is a new website that provides you with healthcare information and tools you can use to keep track of your own health needs. For instance, you can look up recommendations for the healthcare screenings you should have if you are a woman or a man under the age of 50 years. You can keep track of your own screenings by completing one of the fillable and downloadable forms available on this website to create your own personal health record (PHR). The PHR is for your use only. You may print it or save it on your own personal computer. Your personal data will not be saved on this website.

Creating a PHR will allow you to keep your health records in one place. It will be readily available for you to share with your physician, other healthcare provider, family members, or other caregivers.

We encourage you to take action now by becoming more informed about the recommendations for screenings to help to protect your health and by keeping your health records up-to-date. You may be able to help improve the quality of care you receive. Please check back to this website from time to time, as we add more information to help you manage your health.
