We believe in a radically different philosophy of healthcare. We believe the best path to sustained health improvements occur when the patient is in charge. When you empower people to take control of their health, they develop new health behaviors, make smarter healthcare decisions, improve their health, and lower costs. It’s a simple equation that yields powerful results.

Health is what happens outside of the doctor’s office. From your first sip of coffee in the morning to your brushed teeth at bedtime – health happens all day long. In fact, healthcare determines only 11 percent of your overall health while social, economic, and environmental factors determine 50 percent of your overall health. As discussed in our recent white paper, where you live, work, and play factor into your overall health and the social determinants of health help clinicians develop a more complete health picture.

A simple question can launch significant behavior change, and ultimately, health improvement. By asking questions, rather than issuing orders, providers empower patients to take control of their health and develop new behaviors. But, to achieve Iasting health improvements, patients need support and resources to help them in their health journey. Health coaching provides the motivation, structure, and accountability to get them there.

Have you ever smelled or tasted something that instantly transports you to a certain moment in your past? Our nutrition is baked in tradition and is the root of our cultures and customs. Whether we’re roasting a family recipe, eating a corn dog at the annual county fair, or delivering a casserole to a grieving friend, we use food to connect and honor moments in time. As a result, food can also be emotional and lead us to make poor nutritional choices.
