Understanding Your Pedometer
You’ll find a blue & white pedometer in your Welcome Kit.
This is designed to help you keep track of how many steps you take in a day. Doctors recommend taking 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to big benefits for your cardiovascular system and overall health.
What about my doctor?
Moxie helps you work with your doctor to stay on top of your heart health.
In the Moxie Starter Kit, you have received a letter that you can give to your doctor. It explains that you have been selected to participate in this project, and gives details about the support services offered. Please take this with you during your next visit. You can also use your Moxie Wallet Card to show your doctor if s/he wants more information at a later time.
What about my pharmacist?
Moxie knows that your pharmacist is an important member of your healthcare team. That’s why you’ve also received a letter to give to s/he next time you go to refill your prescriptions. This letter explains your participation in the Moxie project, and asks your pharmacist to take some measures to help you stay on track with your medication. This could include prescription refill reminders and medication schedule reviews but it’s up to you.
What about my caregiver?
A caregiver is anyone who provides on-going support to you in managing your overall cardiovascular health. This might be an adult child, a spouse or a hired assistant. Moxie has included a letter to pass along to this person, so you can keep him or her up-to-date about the steps you’re taking to promote your heart health.
