“Working with Kara Ware led to a doubling of my new patients in the first month. Her ability to re-organize my practice and place Jennifer Stump, NBC-HWC, as a health coach into my clinical model has led to better patient outcomes, less stress for me, and an increase in income. We now have a well-oiled machine that takes full advantage of my health coach’s skills and frees me up to do the parts of a functional medicine practice I really enjoy. Working with Kara to integrate a health coach has been the single best practice innovation I’ve made in the last 10-15 years. I recommend her to all of my Kalish Institute students” Dr. Dan Kalish
The Institute for Functional Medicine states that once patients have chosen their medical provider, both patient and medical provider agree to be equal partners.
80% of the Functional Medicine process success is how well a patient can implement lifestyle modifications. 20% of the process is timing medical interventions. The Health Coach supports both patient and provider through the change process. Use these partnership tools to facilitate successful, equal, therapeutic partnerships.
Kara Ware’s business and health coaching services best prepare and supports the medical providers, patients, and parents of patients to create and work within an equal, therapeutic partnership. The equal partnership is the key which makes the Functional Medicine process successful. Kara evolved the health coach workflow model to reduce providers’ stress and improve the patients’ experience. The evolved workflow truly initiates and brings life to the therapeutic partnership philosophy.
