How the Model Works

  1. Guided Health works with your QA/PI systems to approve and implement procedures to provide exceptional care.
  2. We train your providers on how and when to refer clients, and support your staff in the day to day operations.
  3. We provide pre-screened, pre-trained contract professionals, and review the practitioners and systems to ensure ongoing quality of care.

Why the Guided Health Model Works: A Competitive Advantage

Offering in-house acupuncture differentiates your facility from the competition. Guided Health allows your facility to provide alternative modalities for patients who want or need a different approach, such as patients who are refractory to treatment or who prefer a holistic approach.

Having additional options for treatment increases both level and perception of care. Including CAM provides options for patients that lead to increased customer satisfaction and increased patient care options, which promotes more word-of-mouth referrals for your facility.
