The Main Causes of Poor Health and Avoidable Costs are Behavioral not Medical

Chronic conditions account for 75% of U.S. health care spending. It’s also estimated that up to 85% of avoidable costs stem from behavioral factors such as lifestyle, treatment adherence, and disease self-care. Many experts believe that the organizations that will thrive in the new health care marketplace will be the ones who can best engage and guide health behavior change.

Chronic Care Professional

The 40-hour interdisciplinary CCP program prepares health coaches, care managers and care teams in the foundations and best practices of population health management, and chronic care, self-care and lifestyle management support. CCPs also enjoy free access to all CE required for recertification and listing in the only U.S. or international health coach registry.

Registered Health Coach

RHC employs a proprietary, interactive, evidence-based framework and standardized, validated tools to develop and assess practitioner proficiency in the only proven health coaching method: Motivational Interviewing. The 25-hour RHC-I (beginning proficiency) and RHC-II (full proficiency) programs outperform traditional MI workshops in initial evaluations.

Continuous Quality Improvement Tools and Resources

Proficiency in evidence-based health coaching requires a complex skill-set and an advanced training approach facilitated by a MINT/RHC-III-level facilitator. Improvement also requires access to measurement and reporting tools validated for brief health care encounters. Like other fields in health care, adherence to evidence-based practices is a reliable and meaningful measure of program quality.

Two workforce and service quality assessment systems have been developed. The Health Coaching Performance Assessment (HCPA), based on the more generic MITI tool, requires an RHC-III, MINT-level expert to score (code) audio-recorded work samples for RHC proficiency, prepare staff and program progress reports, and conduct one-on-one feedback sessions. The Health Coaching Quality Improvement (HCQI) tool is a condensed, simplified version of the HCPA that can be used onsite by customers to sustain and build on initial gains.

Population Health Improvement (PHI) Learning Collaborative

Our not-for-profit learning collaborative is free and open to all practitioners. We host non-commercial learning events with national experts on topics of practical import. We accept no sponsor fees, dues or public funding for this community. Each event is archived and made available free and on demand to our 10,000+ CCP- and RHC-certified members in the U.S, Canada, South America, the Middle East and Asia.

Raising the Bar of Health Care Training and Continuing Education

As the Institute of Medicine, the World Health Organization, and many others have observed, health care has been slow to adopt modern standards of organization development used widely in most other industries to support transformation. Interdisciplinary CCP and interdisciplinary RHC competency models and training are aligned with Institute of Medicine and World Health Organization recommendations for a 21st century health care workforce.
