When your health care team doesn’t have all the information it needs to make good decisions, the end result can be ineffective care, suffering, and death. Examples of the type of problems that can arise from uncoordinated care:

• Medication interaction crises
• Misinformed diagnoses and treatments
Delays that make treatments less effective or ineffective

Again, these are serious risks that can lead to needless suffering, and even death. Fortunately, you have the power to be your own best medicine, by following these simple “To-Dos.”
