Evidence-Based Health Coaching: Patient-Centered Competencies for Population Health
This report is adapted from a webinar presented by Dr. William Appelgate in 2013. The webinar was offered by Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) and hosted by Melanie Matthews, HIN executive vice president and chief operating officer. This report has been developed for CEOs, medical directors, wellness professionals, human resources professionals, disease management directors, managers and coordinators, health plan executives, care management nurses, business development executives and strategic planning directors.
To provide a patient-centric care and succeed in a value-driven system, healthcare organizations will need to shift primary accountability for health management to the individuals it serves. Evidence-based health coaching supports this population health goal by aligning best practice care with patients’ needs and values. This special report presents a template for utilizing evidence-based health coaching to accomplish that.
