The Wellness Inventory is the perfect program to help you institute a wellness focus in your private practices or medical center, create new profit centers, and help maintain positive relations with your patients. HealthWorld Online now offers a special program designed for health professionals, including nurses, social workers, physicians, PAs, and occupational therapists.

Teaching Your Patients to Be Well

According to Hippocrates, the father of western medicine, the primary role of the physician is as educator. However, in the fast-paced 21st century, health professionals rarely have time to devote to educating their patients in living a healthy lifestyle.

Over forty years ago a young resident in preventive medicine at Johns Hopkins had a flash of inspiration that would come to have a major impact on this problem. Dr. John W. Travis realized he wanted to focus, not on treating patients, but empowering people to be well. He subsequently helped to pioneer the modern wellness movement, opening the first wellness center in America in 1975, and creating the first wellness assessment —the Wellness Inventory, as a whole person intake for the center's clients.

Wellness Inventory is a "whole person" assessment program designed to help patients gain personal insight into their state of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.The program offers guidance and tools to transform this new awareness into lasting changes in their lives, and a renewed sense of health and wellbeing. And best of all, the program can be taken in the comfort of the patient's own home and you will have access to their scores (with their permission).


Benefits to Your Patients:

  • Assessing their current level of "whole person" wellness.
  • Determining the areas of their life they want to improve.
  • Creating a personalized Wellness Action Plan to meet their specific goals.
  • Resources to assist in meeting their goals.
  • Email reminders motivate adherence to Wellness goals.
  • Improved patient health and wellbeing.

Overall Benefits for Your Practice:

  • Create a wellness program for your practice.
  • Use program as marketing tool to help build your practice.
  • Assess your patients in 12 areas of wellness & lifestyle.
  • Determine patient's "change readiness" in each area.
  • Create personalized wellness plans.
  • Track patient's progress in meeting their wellness goals.
  • Help patients achieve a higher level of health and wellbeing.
  • Increase patient retention.
  • Create new profit centers, including corporate wellness.

Reporting, Engagement, Communication, Marketing and Coaching Tools

The Wellness Inventory provides a suite of tools to support a staff member or wellness coach in working with your patients. You will have access to reporting, coaching, engagement, communication, and marketing tools to facilitate one-on-one coaching, follow up, and to strengthen the practitioner/client relationship. Each tool also has a Help Desk Feature to explain how it works.

Individual Patient Reports: Administrative access to individual patient assessment results and wellness plans to facilitate 1-on-1 wellness coaching. Track progress for action steps, individual dimensions of wellness, and pre and post full assessment comparison. Patient reports also include message to client and note-taking features.

Engagement Reports: Follow level of engagement of your patients in the Wellness Inventory program including number of: full assessments completed, individual (of 12) dimensions reassessed, access steps created, action steps tracked, journal entries, and resources accessed.

Group Demographic Reports: Licensees are able to run demographic group reporting on 8 demographic variables for the Wellbeing and Motivation Scores in the 12 dimensions of the assessment. Reports may be performed on both single demographic variables and multiple demographic variables.

"The Wellness Inventory is a refreshing approach after years of "strictly by the numbers" HRAs that tell you how old you ought to be or why you are not already dead. Intuitive in its approach, the Wellness Inventory results seem to have a knack for describing the strengths and weaknesses of the participant in a way that is both informative and educational. The Wellness Inventory provides a valuable tool for better living."
