Health coaches score big gains in clinical outcomes and healthcare cost reduction via telephonic, Web-based and personal interactions with clients. Though transparent to the client, healthcare information technologies (IT) drive the coaching process, providing coaches with tools and data to help eliminate barriers and elicit behavior change in the client.
The best health IT platforms, say the experts, offer a system rich in features but are easy to navigate, freeing the coach to focus on coaching and strengthening the coach-client connection.
In this special report, "Health Coaching IT Tools: Dashboard for Driving Coaching Sessions Toward Behavior Change," two innovators in health coaching detail the ideal roster of features and functionality for a health coaching IT platform -- from coaching support tools to tips on integrating with other systems.
You'll hear from John Harris, senior vice president of the health support division of Healthways, and Sean Slovenski, president and CEO, Hummingbird Coaching Services, who share their experiences with:
- Defining the scope, boundaries and protocol of a health coaching program;
- Identifying key functions of an effective coaching platform;
- Tapping into data from prior coaching encounters, health risk assessments, clinical data repositories, health screenings, eligibility information and other sources;
- Incorporating coach support tools for time and memory efficiency and client resource identification;
- Visualizing a Web portal as a complementary coaching tool;
- Transitioning or expanding from one coaching model to another (prescriptive to collaborative coaching or nurse advice line to telephonic coaching;)
- Assessing health coach performance and quality;
- Evaluating current and future coaching needs;
- and much more.
Promising Outcomes: The Impact of Positive Psychology on Health and Wellness Coaching
Does happiness equal good health? There's no clinical evidence, but recent findings in the field of positive psychology link positive emotions and well-being with both health and longevity. The relatively new domain of coaching psychology is exploring the effects of targeting both the client's mental state and physical condition during the coaching encounter.
This special report, "Promising Outcomes: The Impact of Positive Psychology on Health and Wellness Coaching," explores evidence-based theories and coaching models, research linking physical and mental health, and critical coaching skills and outcomes that help bring about lasting behavior change. The theories of positive psychology come alive during a 15-minute unscripted coaching demonstration that features Wellcoaches CEO Margaret Moore helping volunteer client Kathy Smith (not her real name) identify life issues that are keeping her from being her "best self" in managing her thyroid condition and weight issues.
A full transcript and CD-ROM recording of the coaching demo are included with the printed special report. Note: Purchasers of the report in Adobe Acrobat format will be e-mailed a link to listen to the coaching demo.
Dissecting the dynamics of this brief coach-client interaction, this 55-page report explains how a coach's cultivation of client strengths, positive emotions and self-efficacy can not only help individuals chart a path in the management of their disease but also effect positive change in other life areas.
In addition to Ms. Moore's presentation, this report features an interview with Dr. Neal Mayerson, a clinical psychologist who helped launch the eight-year-old field of positive psychology and a principal in Hummingbird Coaching, a provider of online health coaching. In describing the emerging shift in health coaching from an expert, advice-driven model to a collaborative problem-solving model, Dr. Mayerson explains why health coaches should address the patient's whole state and suggests tools health coaches can use to assess a client's motivational state.
Ms. Moore and Dr. Mayerson provide details on:
- Basic tenets of positive psychology;
- Emerging models of health coaching that incorporate positive psychology;
- Identification and use of character strengths in coaching to motivate and encourage behavior change;
- Demonstration of coaching processes and skills to coach the client to the "best self;"
- Client/member response to the use of positive psychology in health coaching;
- Coaching the health coach in application of positive psychology principles;
- The healthcare provider's health coaching responsibilities;
- The future of positive psychology and global applications;
- and much more.
