Baptist Health Network - HEART MIND PROJECT

Baptist Health Network

Employee Engagement Baptist Health

Baptist Health Network implemented a Caritas HeartMath program, which integrates the Caring Science theory with HeartMath’s science and techniques and emphasizes caring-healing for practitioners and patients alike.

Continuity of Benefits

  • Baptist Health leaders were intrigued to learn that in previous studies, HeartMath participants reported that the benefits of using these tools did not decrease after 6 months for 85% of participants
  • Baptist Health leaders wanted to verify this in their hospital culture
  • They settled on three data points:
    • Before training baseline
    • Second at 1 month
    • Third at 1 year

Sustainable Improvements

Data at 1 Month:
  • 9 metrics of Engagement increase, such as gratitude, motivation, goal clarity, communication effectiveness, positive outlook, and productivity
  • 6 metrics of Stress decreased, including fatigue, anxiety, depression, anger management, and resentfulness
Data at 1 Year:
  • 13 metrics of Engagement continued to increase
  • 6 metrics of Stress continued to decrease

We felt that HeartMath, with its heart-centered methods, gave our staff a technique and tool to connect them to Dr. Watson’s caring theory. The Caring Theory and HeartMath complement each other and together, they give you a more robust way to approach a caring environment.
