Process

The first step is a brief lifestyle assessment so that we may better assist you with managing your health condition. This assessment allows us to take into account biological, social and psychological issues related to your condition.

Working as your health care partner, we will then develop an individualized program with realistic goals and expectations, taking into consideration your health, overall lifestyle, family support system and schedule demands.

ServicesBiopsychosocial support

Bio-psychosocial assessments are conducted to gain a better understanding of the whole person, the barriers that might be preventing them from achieving their health goals, and to help inform the health or wellness coach of appropriate interventions for each individual. Readiness to change is assessed and a diverse array of psychological and behavioral change tools to empower individuals to become better self- managers of their health is employed. 

Care Management

Care management serves as a means for achieving client wellness and autonomy through advocacy, communication, education, identification of service resources and service facilitation. The care manager will help participants identify appropriate providers and facilities throughout the continuum of services, while ensuring that available resources are being used in a timely and cost-effective manner in order to obtain optimum value for both the participant and the reimbursement source.  The care manager will facilitate the assessment process, planning, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality cost-effective outcomes.

Disease-Specific Education

Disease-specific education classes are offered to participants experiencing the same condition.  It is an opportunity to meet together to discuss the daily challenges they face while trying to manage a chronic condition. The group format allows for participants to brainstorm and share ideas, and normalizes a patient’s experience.  The classes instill a sense of hope and also help to build motivation for change. 

Educational Workshops

These workshops are conducted through a team of Diabetes Educators, Dietitians, Health Coaches, Nurse Practitioners and other health professionals.  All workshops are designed to highlight the benefits of adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Medication Therapy Management  is a service that is delivered through the Know Your Rx Pharmacy Coalition.  It is designed to facilitate collaboration among the pharmacist, patient, physician, and other health care professionals to promote safe and effective medication use and achieve optimal patient outcomes.

Nutrition Counseling

Nutrition counseling is an ongoing process in which a health professional will work with you to assess your dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. Nutrition counseling is an option for those who are interested in making and maintaining dietary changes to improve their health.  As a part of counseling, you may receive educational materials, support, and follow-up to assist you with your journey to better health.

Wellness Coaching

Through wellness coaching, participants will identify their wellness priorities while working one-on-one with a wellness coach.  A wellness coach will use behavior change tools to empower participants to take charge, connect with their motivators, and learn goal setting strategies.  Wellness coaching creates a powerful partnership between client and coach, provides support, guidance, and encouragement, is free of judgment and facilitates change by focusing on your past success and strengths.
