Advocating for Better Health

BetterHealth3.pngThe Maine Association of Area Agencies on Aging is working toward better healthcare for Older Mainers. The “triple aim” approach of health care transformation is to improve health and health care, reduce avoidable costs, and improve patient experience.

We’re promoting Choosing Wisely as a decision making tool that can help patients know what questions to ask generally when faced with a recommended test, procedure or new prescription. It encourages patients to be active partners in their own care. Good communication between patients and their primary care providers is the best way to improve patient health, increase quality of care and reduce healthcare costs.

On this page, you’ll find information about Choosing Wisely and be connected with other tools, like the Better Health Better ME consumer tool.
