YOUR Health...
in your hands

Engaging patients and families is a critical component in improving health care quality and health outcomes in Louisiana. However, this goal cannot be achieved unless patients and families become partners in redesigning, improving and advancing health care strategies.

“Your Health In Your Hands” is a joint, statewide campaign of the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum and the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH). This partnership is focused on empowering Louisiana residents with education and information about available tools, technologies and resources – such as electronic health records, patient portals and other health information technology (IT) tools – that can be used to improve their health.

With the goal of helping Louisiana residents improve their health and make better decisions about their care, our state is committed to ensuring that patients and families have the right access to the right information at the right time.
