In collaboration with HeartMath the hospital can create a new baseline of community health and wellness through the application of the science of coherence. Significant research since the mid-1990s has demonstrated the importance of psychophysiological coherence in a range of health and organizational outcomes. Simply said, coherence is a state of synchronization in which all parts can function in a more efficient, balanced way. Coherence applies as much to the human system mentally, emotionally and physically, as it does to the staff of a hospital, a manufacturing plant, police and emergency workers, teachers and their students, a church congregation and its pastor, and athletic teams.
All members of a community will benefit by helping each other lower stress and work together more effectively.
Core content within the project is the proprietary programs and technology developed at the Institute of HeartMath. This content will be delivered through a range of organizational and public workshops, coaching, web-based support tools, and HeartMath’s award-winning emWave technologies. The emWave Personal Stress Reliever (handheld device) and emWave PC Stress Relief System (computer based) have been implemented in hundreds of corporations, health care systems and schools globally. They are based on the science of heart rate variability, which has established a clear relationship between emotions and heart-brain function. HeartMath’s stress reduction techniques, combined with the personalized feedback of the emWave technologies, have been proven to help individuals transform stress into productive energy and vitality. Significant outcomes have been achieved in chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and congestive heart failure, organizational performance, and student academic performance.
The hospital/medical center will take a leadership role in the delivery of the HeartMath programs within the community, but various organizations will also be empowered to deliver the programs to their members as well.
