Overview:

The Health Coach is responsible for a panel of patients and, in collaboration with other members of an integrated primary care team, helps patients meet their preventive, chronic and acute care needs. Health Coaches engage patients and encourage them to take an active role in their health by providing them with the tools necessary to make healthy lifestyle choices and adopt lifelong healthy behaviors.

The Health Coach’s primary responsibilities center around establishing trusting, supportive, collaborative relationships with patients and their families. Health Coaches build relationships with patients in a clinical setting, learning the patient’s health goals while checking their vitals, engaging the patient in long-term lifestyle changes while helping them more immediately in sick visits, and actively listening to and supporting the patient, then coordinating a hospital or specialist service when necessary. Health Coaches work alongside medical providers, other health coaches and a behavioral health specialist in a collaborative, empathetic team to build these relationships.
