Health coaching is proving to be a winning strategy in managing disease and reducing complications from chronic conditions. Health plans, employers and providers who have recruited health coaches for their teams have found that members and patients are healthier and hospital admissions and unnecessary emergency room visits are decreasing substantially, which in turn is saving millions of healthcare dollars annually.

· Background on Health Coaching: Health coaching has become an integral part of today's wellness programs. Using a whole-person approach to treat the entire person instead of just a few symptoms, health coaches are key in navigating patients toward healthier lifestyles and disease self-management. As healthcare costs continue to soar, health plans and employers are looking to telephonic and Web-based health coaches for relief from the financial strains as health coaches are not only treating the illness, but promoting healthy lifestyles and choices in general.
· Newsletter Highlights: The HealthCoach Huddle monthly e-newsletter will bring you the most current news available on news on health coaching including from coaching strategies and interviews with and quotables from the industry's leading health coaches.
