What does this mean for the doctors and patients at Manzella Family Healthcare?
When patients complete their assessments, Manzella will gain insight into each patient’s behavior pattern, helping them to best communicate with each individual patient. This insight results in improved patient satisfaction, a better understanding of their health and the power to make changes.
Understanding patients’ values, motivations, wants, fears and goals, helps providers motivate patients to make healthier choices. Dr. Manzella looks forward to the long-term impact of using the program and hopes that HABIT will help reduce the morbidity of chronically ill patients.
The messaging system within the IHW HABIT™ program keeps patients engaged, sending them reminder emails, motivational messages, warning messages and other messages highlighting their progress.
Brian Butler, CEO of IHW, says “This is a step in the right direction for patient centric healthcare. This partnership will help members take proactive responsibility for their health by teaching them how to change their behaviors and live healthier lives.”
Manzella Family Healthcare has two convenient locations: Palmerton and Jim Thorpe, PA, and also make house calls to patients throughout Carbon, Northampton, Lehigh, and Schuylkill counties.
