Sponsored by: Building a Health Management IT Platform for Health Coaching

An effective health coaching program needs an IT platform that can process information from various sources, including online and paper health risk assessments, clinical data repositories, health screenings, eligibility information and portal requests, then provide that information in a usable format for health coaches. Building a Health Management IT Platform for Health Coaching, a June 13, 2007 audio conference, will describe how healthcare organizations can effectively build a platform for an effective health coaching program.

3.) Depression and Disease Management Beyond the Stigma to Identification and Treatment

With the economic burden of depression and its co-morbidities estimated at $83 billion annually–hitting employers hardest in the form of lost workdays, compromised productivity and workplace accidents–the healthcare industry is formalizing programs for early identification, adequate treatment and medical adherence of individuals with depressive disorder. This is no small task, given the challenges of screening depression severity, overcoming the stigma of mental illness, and educating primary care physicians on the value of this initiative. In its August 2005 online survey, the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) asked its audience for details on current and planned initiatives for depression and disease management.
