The Benefits of Clinical Health Coach Training For Physicians
A leading primary care physician recently asked, “How can I as a busy practitioner possibly be responsible for an entire population of patients, especially those with chronic disease? We need help!”
Are you similarly challenged meeting the growing expectations placed on your primary care practice? If so, you’re not alone. Creating a patient-centric, high performance practice takes a team—often one with a new game plan.
Providing patient care is a formidable task in itself. Added to that is an increasing expectation that physicians become even more patient-centered, more proactive and more responsible for our patients regardless of the reimbursement complications.
One effective approach to this very real dilemma is being embraced by leading providers and clinics—partnering with patients using staff trained in clinical health coaching. Doing, teaching and telling patients hasn’t driven the levels of patient engagement and responsibility that will be required as for the medical practice of the future. In order to achieve the levels of activation and effective self-care that will move the needle on quality and outcomes, and with it the revenues and reimbursement targets that practices will need to remain viable, care delivery strategies need to evolve.
Making Clinical Health Coaching part of that strategy can help. The Clinical Health Coach® program is specifically designed to help the physician and the practice shift care processes (often those already in place) to achieve population health success—delivering better care, better health and lower cost.
