"The project reinforced our belief that programmatic success can be achieved in a community when there is an understanding of the people, their culture, an element of trust, and innovative ideas that educate, and provide opportunity to better life situations. The HEP ( Help Empowerment Parties ) project we believe provided these components to our participants and was a success."

"Through the project we were able to convince participants that by using the planner to record important aspects of their health care and not leaving a medical visit until they understood their medical diagnosis, they could improve their health. For many patients the planner became their Linus Blanket. As a result of this project we learned that if patients knew and understand their medical issues they will try to work with their providers to get well"

See what people are saying about My Health Companion"All of the people who enrolled( in the demonstration project) were excited to receive the planner. Many of the participants had never received or owned a book for their own personal use made of the quality of the planner. To many of the participants the planner was an object of pride. It was stated by one participant,This must be an important project. They gave us such a nice book to use The sense of pride in the use of the planner was observed by many of the staff at St. Louis ConnectCare. Many of the patients, they said, proudly presented their planners when they were called in to see their providers."

"As the data will indicate the main objectives of the project were realized by most of the participants. They gained information about their diagnosis,pharmacy online ,learned about the medications they taking and made the decision to continue with the medication until having a discussion with the provider about whether to stop or change amounts. They also began inquiring about why test or procedures were given and what they were to do. In essence we saw patients become empowered to participate in their healthcare through the use of the planner."
