"The success of every one of our health and wellness centers across the country depends on the people we have delivering care," Dr. Franklin said. "Healthstat gives us the ability to do something special that can otherwise get lost in today's delivery of medical care. By taking the time to listen and build relationships with patients, our clinicians can help unlock the potential for change. The words we strive to hear from our patients are, 'I just got better care than I've ever gotten. My providers really took their time with me. They helped me to understand what I need to do next so that I can live the life I want to lead.'" Dr. Franklin noted that to provide the best possible care to patients, providers also have to be able to care for their own well-being on the job.
