Facing an important health decision?
Library & Decision Aids
Through our Healthy Living/MyWHA Wellness webpage, you have access to a wellness portal and a health library that provides information on a variety of topics. Also available is an interactive program known as Decision Aids. This tool guides you through important health decisions that combines medical information along with your personal values that help you to make informed decisions about medical tests, medicines, surgeries, and other treatments options.
Good health decisions can help you reduce costs while getting better care and take into account:
- The benefits of each option
- The risks of each option
- The costs of each option
- Your own needs and wants
Use the printable summary to help you talk to your doctor about the best health solution that fits your health care needs.
