It is essential for Weight2Lose license owners or senior administration staff to manage Weight2Lose operations on your premises.
It is important for license owners to have qualified staff (e.g. registered nurse practitioner or registered dietitian) that completed the facilitator training portion of the Weight2Lose licensing course covering nutrition, cognitive behavioral therapy and health education.
A site license owner and/or operations manager may facilitate programs in addition to managing operations. This may help lower expenses in the initial stages of growth. Once your clinic becomes busy, it is advisable to have a dedicated operations manager to oversee sales, marketing and administrative duties.
You must have insurance coverage for your healthcare business, with Weight2Lose as additional insured. Facilitators must have coverage relevant to their area of practice.
