This is the first webinar in our series of How to Get Paid as a Health Coach.
Our guest speaker in this webinar is Kara Ware. Kara has developed a very unique system to work with her practitioner Dr. Nathan Morris. He is a functional medicine certified practitioner and Elise Wagner our co-founder and chief admissions officer is also here and they are going to talk with Kara about how she gets paid as a health coach.
What is unique about Kara’s model?
Dr. Nathan Morris and Kara share a philosophy that the essence of functional medicine is the patient/provider partnership.
They positioned Kara who is a functional medicine certified health coach, as the front line of care and even as the first point of contact when patients call the practice inquiring about becoming a new patient.
This allows Kara to use her coaching skills to build rapport by hearing the patient story asking questions about their life to help them connect.
Next helping them to understand the modifiable lifestyle factors, and how to really master those modifiable lifestyle factors by creating simple steps that they could do while they were waiting to see Dr. Morris.
This made Dr. Morris’s new patient appointment incredibly efficient.
The patient was prepared to be that partner with him so that their modifiable lifestyle factors that were reviewed in that front line of care during that first encounter, can be then paired with his medical advice. Thus allowing patients to experience results even even sooner because they were already engaged in those modifiable lifestyle factors.
