True patient partnerships are more than good provider strategy, they are a requirement for population health success. Engagement is the foundation. However, activation of positive health behaviors, building self-care skills and inspiring sustained patient accountability is the trifecta.
Effective patient engagement and activation do not happen by accident. They require healthcare professionals talented in the art and science of effective patient coaching and communication. The Clinical Health Coach trainings were built in the clinical setting. They were designed to help move patients with chronic conditions to new levels of accountable self-care and improved outcomes – clinical, experience and cost. The Clinical Health Coach training offers a proven strategy for clinics, ACOs, health systems and other healthcare providers desiring positive patient outcomes.
Clinical Health Coach training develops a very particular set of skills. Skills to evoke patient interests, inspire positive health behaviors and to collaboratively create practical patient focused plans for positive health behavior change. The patient is the greatest untapped resource in healthcare. Capturing a patient’s interest in partnership with effective coach support and encouragement is the future for value based healthcare.
69 percent of healthcare costs are driven by health behaviors; 98 percent of health care takes place outside the provider office. Leading providers know that positive health behaviors in the home, grocery store and throughout daily living guides outcomes for their patients. The quest is finding the effective strategy to inspire positive, sustainable patient behaviors once they leave the provider setting. Education by itself has not proven sufficient.
Clinical Health Coach training is performance focused. It begins with foundational skills in engaging, evoking and planning with patients and families. It develops talent around behavioral change, building self-care skills and inspiring sustained patient accountability. It guides healthcare professionals toward implementing health coaching in an effective population health strategy. Training success is then measured by a coaching performance assessment – with a standardized patient set in a clinical scenario.
