Sea Girt NJ USA -- June 12, 2013: Within value-based reimbursement, health coaches can play a critical role in managing the health of chronic care patients. Through the use of patient registries and the necessary skill sets, health coaches can drive population health management processes for the improved outcomes needed to succeed in a value-based system.

During Health Coaching's Value in Accountable Care and Medical Homes, a June 19th, 2013 webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, William Appelgate, executive director of the Iowa Chronic Care Consortium, will share how an evidence-based health coaching focus drives returns in a value-based payment delivery system. Alicia Vail, R.N. health coach, Ochsner Health System, will join Appelgate and share an overview of Ochsner's health coaching program at eight clinics within its value-based healthcare system. Vail will also drill-down to the coaching interventions and results achieved from the health coaching program at the clinic in which she coaches.

You will learn how to:

  • Transform health coaching conversations with chronic condition patients to motivate patient self-management;
  • Transform care processes and work flows to increase the effectiveness of a health coaching program;
  • Develop a health coaching competency;
  • Maximize the reimbursement for health coaching initiatives through care coordination fees;
  • Determine organizational readiness for a health coaching program;
  • Recruit and manage a patient population;
  • Structure a clinic’s workflow to maximize health coaching results;
  • Overcome the barriers to health coaching in this new environment; and
  • Track HEDIS measures to ensure quality goals are met.
