Do your patients need more support than productivity demands allow for?
Are you frustrated that you don’t have enough time to support and educate your patients to make healthy habits and health behavior changes a reality?
Are your patients frustrated because they are unsure of how to start or sustain effective change for a well managed chronic illness?
As a doctor, your time is a premium. Routine patient encounters are often rife with patient needs to be addressed in brief time periods, allowing time only for concise recommendations with an outline that your patient must fill in.

RESEARCH IS BEGINNING TO SHOW THAT PATIENT OUTCOMES IMPROVE WITH HEALTH COACHING.
“Health coaching is a team-based approach that helps patients gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to become active participants in their care. The old saying, “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime” demonstrates the difference between rescuing a patient and coaching a patient. Patients with chronic conditions need to learn how to fish. Health coaching can be supplemented with health literacy strategies and effective communication techniques, such as ask-tell-ask, teach-back and/or action planning to ensure patient comprehension of their care plans and help them achieve their goals.”
