How may the Health Information contained within MSM e-HealthyStrides be used by Morehouse?
The e-HealthyStrides serves as both a repository of your health information as well as a tool to inform you about opportunities to improve your health. As new data is entered, it is scanned by the system in order to identify ways in which your diabetes care may be improved.

In-built algorithm matches information in the e-HealthyStrides about your health and treatment against a set of generally accepted clinical "best practices" derived from the medical literature. Alert messages are then delivered to you in order to provide you with information you can discuss with your doctor. We encourage you to speak with your doctor about the Alerts, so you and your doctor can determine whether any change in your medical care is warranted.

You should never rely on an Alert as the sole basis for changing your medical treatment. Alerts are for informational purposes only and do not constitute, and are not intended as a substitute for, medical advice. Certain Alerts may not be appropriate for your particular medical condition because the messages are based exclusively on information supplied by you in your e-HealthyStrides, which information may be incomplete. As always, if you think you have a medical emergency, you should immediately call your doctor or call 911.diately call your doctor or call 911.
