Emerging findings from two health coaching organizations indicate that the structure of a coaching program and in some cases the coaches' own personal attributes can deliver hoped-for participant outcomes in weight management, tobacco cessation, stress management and related health-related savings.

In this special report, "Measuring Change: Evaluating Health and Wellness Coaching Performance, Outcomes and ROI," two health coaching thought leaders present their coaching ROI models and examine the impact of health and wellness coaching on behaviors and the bottom line. They also share anecdotal research that ties coaches' personal attributes to optimal outcomes information that can influence health and wellness coach hiring strategies.

Healthcare Consumerism: The New Wave of Healthcare?

With the age of healthcare consumerism and its retail orientation upon us, consumers need the right information to make educated decisions about their healthcare. A recent Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) webinar on healthcare trends begged the question: Will consumerism in healthcare, also known as its retail orientation, succeed in transforming the industry in terms of quality and patient behaviors? HIN conducted a non-scientific online survey in December 2007 where more than 150 organizations including hospitals, physician organizations and health plans weighed in on the debate. This complimentary white paper is available at http://www.hin.com/library/registerhccnw.html

January 28, 2008: Page views, favorited, embedded...this is the lexicon of Susan Reid, internet marketing manager for UAB Health System of Alabama, which is experiencing so much success with its foray into Web 2.0 technologies that it has reallocated some of its former print communications budget for Internet marketing, video and interactive tools in 2008.

Building an Advanced Medical Home to Improve Chronic Care Outcomes

January 15, 2008: This podcast presents the advanced medical home model from the perspectives of the provider and the health plan. The solid relationships that patients build with ACCESS Plus providers and office staff, many of whom live in the neighborhood, keep them coming back in for care, explains Dr. Lonnie E. Fuller, medical director for the Pennsylvania Medicaid ACCESS Plus Primary Care Case Management and Disease Management (PCCM-DM) program. But marketing the medical home to the commercial population will be a challenge, says Dawn Bazarko, UnitedHealthcare's senior vice president of clinical innovation, since it will result in a fundamental change to the healthcare service model. Organizations must take care to distinguish it from the "gatekeeper" HMO approach that many found undesirable and care-restrictive in the past.
