This Week's Challenge: Health coaching and the tools and technologies supporting it are critical elements of a population health management approach. Telephonically, face-to-face and increasingly powered by mHealth, health coaches are instrumental in reducing health risk across the care continuum, often working within new care delivery models such as the patient-centered medical home and the accountable care organization. We wanted to see what ROI was generated by health coaching programs.
