Like most population health management initiatives, health coaching programs are facing increased bottom line scrutiny. Consequently, they must demonstrate on a variety of levels the positive impact and return on investment (ROI) their programs will have from both a financial and clinical perspective. Structuring an effective ROI calculation is key to the ongoing success of health coaching initiatives. Executives from two health coaching organizations will present health coaching ROI metrics and measurements during a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern on November 15, 2007.

QUOTES ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:
"Many organizations are utilizing health coaching to foster healthier behaviors and disease self-management, but with health coaching still in its infancy, few metrics exist. Measurements and standards are needed to gauge not only the financial and clinical effectiveness of health coaching, but also the skills of individual health coaches. All of these efforts will help ensure transparency and quality in the health coaching arena."
