HeartMath Health Care Programs Results and Case Study


This is a time of unequalled stress in hospitals and clinics. A nursing shortage, now reaching unprecedented proportions, ranks as one of the top three problems hospital administrators face. High turnover rates, sick leave, medical errors, and shrinking reimbursement add greater and greater stress. With these stresses, changes and challenges, personal and organisational effectiveness suffers.
Stress and emotional management is a prerequisite for individual and organisational health and productivity. Thriving health care organisations are the one which create a culture of care for their workforce as well as for the patients and communities they serve. Providing skills, tools and strategies to manage the stress and emotions of each individual working in health care benefit both the staff, the organisation and customers.
