"It's My Healthcare" is a joint initiative of Westchester County and representatives of the county's medical community. It's all about understanding health care quality.

For Patients
Research has shown that science-based measures can be used to assess quality for various conditions and for specific types of care.  For example, quality health care is:

  • Doing the right thing - getting the health services you need
  • At the right time - when you need them
  • In the right way - using the appropriate test or procedure
  • To achieve the best possible results

Find out what you need to know to get the best care.

For Providers
Providing quality health care also means striking the right balance of services by:

  • Avoiding under use - e.g. not screening a person for high blood pressure
  • Avoiding overuse - e.g. performing tests a patient doesn't need
  • Eliminating misuse - e.g. providing medications that may have dangerous interactions
