IIHI Integrative Healthcare Solutions:

Today, healthcare is looking at ways to care for the whole person. As the trend toward integrated care gains further momentum, hospitals and care providers need to be at the table, integrally involved in the planning and design of the clinical and financial service models. The integration of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies with the practice of conventional medicine is occurring. Hospitals are offering CAM therapies, health maintenance organizations (HMOs) are covering such therapies, a growing number of physicians use CAM therapies in their practices, insurance coverage for CAM therapies is increasing, and integrative medicine centers and clinics are being established.

There are also increasing demands from patients for Integrative Health Cares solutions. The quality of the patient experience is now more than ever a determining factor in the success of a hospital or practice. Navigating these uncharted waters may be difficult. IIHI consulting services help bridge the gaps. We serve as a nexus where the hospital administrator, the medical professional, the nurses, the CAM practitioners and the community can share information and solutions. We offer comprehensive consulting solutions, training packages and preparatory courses for nurses.

IIHI Consulting Services include:

  • Turn-Key Operational Package for the Integrative Health Care Hospital Model 

  • Turn-Key Operational Package for the Integrative Health Care Out Patient Model

  • Train the Trainers Package for creating nursing culture of healing and caring through Holistic Nursing.
