The Health Science Index – HSI mobile app facilitates the philosophy of “whole patient care”. It reinforces the notion that the physical, social, emotional, mental, cultural, and spiritual dimensions of a person must be viewed as an integrated whole.
HSI supports the team approach to treatment. It often happens in a recovery or rehabilitation setting where a team of specialists are needed to ensure a patient or client will thrive.
The Health Science Index system helps to identify the patients’ whole-person needs and then provide practical and emotional support. For this whole-person focus to succeed in providing health centering around the total patient, the tool uncovers all needs: functionally, emotionally, or socially oriented.
