Sea Girt NJ USA -- September 6, 2012: An integrated health coaching approach that addresses the needs of those with lifestyle and health behavior changes, along with those with chronic conditions, provides a coaching model that addresses participants' needs across the continuum while delivering results in a reduction of healthcare utilization, improvements in clinical and HEDIS measures and a return on investment.

During Integrated Health Coaching: The Next Generation in Health Behavior Change Management, a September 20, 2012 webinar at 1:30 pm Eastern, Kelly Merriman, HealthFitness' vice president of service delivery and Dr. Dennis Richling, chief medical and wellness officer at HealthFitness, will share the key features of HealthFitness' integrated health coaching program, from how participants are assessed and assigned to coaches to the program's impact.

  • The three levels of health coaching within the integrated health coaching model and how individuals are assigned to each level;
  • The health risk factors and predictive modeling algorithm used to determine a person's eligibility for coaching;
  • How coaches can maximize the interactions between patients and their primary care and specialist physicians to address the health needs of coaching clients;
  • The tools used by the health coaches to achieve engagement, behavior change and condition management, including motivational interviewing, positive psychology, appreciative inquiry and stages of change; and
  • The key metrics used to evaluate the health coaching model and program effectiveness and results from the program.
