While a recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that obesity is statistically a greater threat to overall public health than tobacco, the two behaviors still contribute to a high level of chronic illness and healthcare cost.

For example, states spend up to $15 billion a year in medical expenses related to obesity alone, according to a 2011 study by researchers at RTI International, Duke University and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). To bend this cost trend and improve overall population health, providers, payors and employers have fashioned programs aimed at reducing these two behaviors. They also have invested heavily in health coaching to elicit the desired health behavior changes in these risk areas and others.

2011 Benchmarks in Population Health Management: What's Working in Coaching, Weight Control and Tobacco Cessation takes a comprehensive look at industry activity in health coaching as a whole, then drills down to condition-specific programs. The disease management data contained in this benchmarks report are derived from three separate surveys conducted in 2010 by the Healthcare Intelligence Network, to which a total of 425 organizations responded.
