Healthie is excited to support the graduates of Institute for Integrative Nutrition [IIN]! IIN’s mission to improve the health and well-being of individuals through supportive health coaching melds naturally with Healthie’s goal to increase access to nutritional care to better prevent and manage chronic diseases. We’ve seen first-hand how graduates and students of IIN have benefited from Healthie’s turn-key HIPAA-compliant practice management and telehealth platform in launching and growing private practices.
Healthie, the industry’s only all-in-one platform for nutritional care, lowers the administrative and financial burden when starting a nutrition counseling business. With features to streamline client package creation and credit card processing, scheduling and charting simplification, as well as an app for client food logging and communication, Healthie is a natural fit for professionals who often struggle with piecing together over 7 platforms to start a business following IIN graduation.
Additionally, Healthie’s secure video conferencing and messaging through our easy-to-use app provides a simple way for health coaches to communicate with clients and help clients all over the world. But one favorite feature among health coaches is the photo food logging and mindfulness tracking that clients can quickly document in the Healthie app. Clients love photographing and sharing their meals, snacks, and workouts with their coaches and coaches love the added layer of accountability and increased communication that this feature provides.
Karissa Long, Chief Financial Officer of a leading fin-tech startup in NYC, was inspired to enroll in IIN’s introductory course to become a health coach when she was diagnosed with an immune disease that affected the way her body was able to process certain foods. Going through the process of learning to eat the right foods and educating herself, Long realized the need for more individuals to have experts to guide them. “As an integrated nutrition health coach, I want to share the knowledge I’ve gained through my personal wellness journey to inspire other people to thrive in their lives,” says Karissa. Thus, she decided to open up shop to support others in need, and was able to leverage Healthie to launch her practice with ease. Says Long,
Healthie was truly a one-stop-shop that had everything I needed to start my business and allow me to focus on the important part – starting to bring clients in the door. The scheduling, charting, billing, and messaging pieces were all taken care of for me. Plus, I love that I can now connect with future clients virtually, which means I can hold off on renting office space, which lowers my overhead substantially.”
Long is a certified nutrition health coach with her own practice who works with busy moms, business professionals, and athletes to help them towards their wellness goals.
Since it’s 1992 inception, IIN has grown to become the largest nutrition and health coaching school in the world. The Institution has effectively collaborated with many influential experts in nutrition and wellness, including Dr. David Katz MD, Marion Nestle PhD MPH, Andrew Weil MD, Arianna Huffington, and Dr. Mark Hyman to provide the highest quality of education for their students. The alumni base of thousands of health coaches around the world have been instrumental in providing accountability and support to millions of individuals around the world. Healthie is proud to support IIN graduates in their pursuits to democratize access to needed nutritional care.
