Thanks to baby boomers, America’s aging population is at an all-time high and will continue to grow. Experts predict that 24 percent of the U.S. population will be at least 65 by the year 2060, bringing with it an increased demand for health and wellness services.
From physical rehabilitation facilities to resort spas, the question many of us in the health care world are asking is how can the quality of care remain high despite this increased demand and possible strain?
The answer is communication.
“The old technique of having a conversation is 99 percent of what a successful doctor’s visit is about,” says Peter Salgo, a professor of medicine at Columbia University, in an article for USA Today. The article, entitled “How to Talk to a Doctor,” by Kim Painter isn’t new, but the subject is timeless.
Without a doubt, the key to providing quality care in every possible setting is effective communication. It’s one of the main reasons we developed the IGetBetterWellness Connected Coaching app—to streamline the communication process by making it remotely accessible.
Rather than a one-and-done wellness visit, IGetBetter turns the caregiver-client relationship into an ongoing, interactive experience. If your client forgets to ask you a question, he can simply send a message through the IGetBetter portal. Conversely, if you want to send a new exercise or dietary suggestion to your client, you can send it from your smart phone at any time. It’s that simple.
Of course, IGetBetterWellness Connected Coaching offers so much more than just messaging. The first mobile application of its kind, IGetBetterWellness is an efficient all-in-one managing tool that consolidates caregiver and client data, monitors client progress and provides alerts to caregivers when needed to help clients stay on track and be successful.
Rather than boxing your care into a confined space or time, IGetBetter empowers you to be the director of an extended caregiving experience with the highest level of control at your fingertips. Learn how IGetBetterWellness Connected Coaching can help to enhance your wellness group. Call us today!
