When it comes to your healthcare, who is the most important decision maker? If you said "I am" you are exactly right! Your health is greatly influenced by where you live, work and play -- your Lifespace - and what you do when you are in each of those places. Healthcare team members appreciate that while you look to the Military Health System (MHS) for appointments, prescriptions, treatments, and health education, the decisions YOU make impact YOUR health. Healthcare providers and staff are important members of your team but you are at the center of that team.
You determine the key decisions and the steps you will follow every day. In appreciation of your involvement in your health outcomes, Army Surgeon General, Lt. Gen. Patricia Horoho announced that Army Medicine would move from a Healthcare System to a System For Health. The goal is to help YOU improve YOUR health!
