What is Health Tactics?

Health Tactics is a website dedicated to self-sufficiency in managing our own health and the health of those we love. We do not advocate avoiding or disengaging from one’s doctor or hospital. Rather, we believe that one should be well informed and well prepared and have a network of support when dealing with the health care system. Those who are well informed, well prepared and who have support generally have a much better experience.

More about Health Tactics:

To help consumers on the path to self sufficiency, we provide a number of resources:

  • A Social Network devoted exclusively to the personal health of its members.
  • A secure, private Personal Health Record, where users can enter and track their own conditions, visits, medications, allergies etc.
  • A Blog, where users can read posts related to the social network and participate in brief, health care related polls.
  • A link to register for our email education list. By doing this, you will receive regular educational content, in the form of PDF files, that will show you how to get the most from our health record, social network and other services.
  • Helpful links to research organizations, news organizations and health care foundations where there is plenty of helpful, free information. Examples include the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Kaiser Family Foundation and articles published by The New York Times and/or CNN.
  • A Store section, with links to health related products and services.

All of the above features are FREE, with the exception, of course, of products purchased through the store section of the site. Moreover, any ads are confined to the store. There will be no advertising at all on the MediPilot personal health record site. Your information is not tracked, shared or sold in any way.

We do recognize, however, that people sometimes have a need or desire to purchase health related products and services. To address this need, we have a section called "Store", which contains links to websites where these products and services can be purchased. We believe that if we provide consistent, free, high quality services to our users, that when you have a need for a purchased product or service, you will consider visiting our store.

More about our store:

We will only post links from reputable, known organizations. Health Tactics does have a financial interest in these links, known as affiliate links. The way these work is as follows:
If you click our link to an online bookstore (for example) to purchase a health related book, we would receive a small percentage of that sale. Similar affiliate programs exist for a broad range of products.

Health Tactics will continually add features and capabilities to our site, and products to our store that our users find the most helpful in managing their health.
