Health Coaching’s Call to Manage
Weight, Chronic Disease

Health coaching is a critical tool in population health management. And despite the array of technologies available in healthcare today, the majority of coaches still connect to clients telephonically to help boost self-management of disease and reduce risk and associated cost across the health continuum.

As highlighted in this new infographic from the Healthcare Intelligence Network, the telephone remains the chief modality for health coaching delivery; face-to-face coaching the second most preferred method, despite a drop in in-person coaching from 70 percent in 2010 to 59 percent in 2013. The infographic is drawn from results of HIN's annual Health Coaching survey.

Weight and chronic disease management remain the top two areas addressed by coaching, but in terms of populations, those considered 'well' are just as likely to receive coaching today as those with chronic diseases.

A mobile health note: 12 percent of this year's survey respondents say they have an app for health coaching.
