Getting the best health care and results for you and your family means having the information you need to be an active partner in your health and health care. That's why Better Health Greater Cleveland's medical practices report how well they and their patients are doing on standards for recommended care and clinical results. The clinical data come straight from patients' medical records, mostly those kept in the practices' computer systems. However, personal health information never leaves the doctors' office.
Doctors use the compiled results to identify opportunities to improve. Patients can use them to understand the care they should receive and the results they should aim for. That way, they have the information they need to talk to their doctor about their care.
