Physicians engaging in empathy-driven communication

Implement Empathy.
Reduce Turnover.

Welcome to Empathetics where the science of care meets the science of empathy. Through innovative, evidence-based methods, we help healthcare organizations implement empathy training to reduce turnover, improve organizational culture and improve patient care.  

Start Improving Clinician Wellness Now  

No need to build a burnout, wellness or empathy training program yourself.  We already did it for you with great results.  Empathetics trained clinicians are 17 times less likely to leave their jobs. Healthcare organizations who use Empathetics show improved: employee engagement, employee wellness, clinician retention, patient experience, healthcare reimbursement and healthcare outcomes.  Empathetics customers show decreased rates of professional burnout, employee turnover, malpractice claims and patient complaints. 

An Approach Based on Peer-Reviewed Research and Clinical Results

Healthcare organizations and their clinical staff come to Empathetics because our evidence-based programs are validated in published research and results generated with our clients.  They also value that the content and expertise is grounded in neuroscience.

Thousands of clinicians and staff have trained with Empathetics programs as allies in our mission to transform healthcare through the power of empathy and human connection.

Empathetics is a wellness tool that increases our Patient Experience scores. While physicians did not change the length of their visits, patients' perception of provider’s time-spent increased, per their CG-CAHPS scores.

We're experts in empathy and communication. 

Empathy training and practice keeps the capacity for empathy high.  Without it, empathy can diminish, adversely affecting patient care and leading to increased clinician burnout and resignations.
