The Health Coaching Intervention designates and trains existing or new staff members to engage and empower high risk patients to better manage heart health-related chronic conditions and lifestyle factors. The first step to adopting this intervention is to work with your TN Heart Health Network Practice Facilitator to fill out the Function & Form Matrix and the Memo of Agreement.
In order to ensure that your intervention is a success, your practice agrees to provide:
Release time for training for staff members involved in the Health Coaching intervention
A minimum of 8 hours a week release time for staff members involved in the Health Coaching Intervention
A process to identify at-risk patients for outreach
Active referrals and/or warm handoffs made to your Health Coaching staff
Implementation of the sustainability plan, which includes the utilization and documentation of CPT codes for the reimbursement of key Health Coaching services
A contact person from your practice that will work with the TN Heart Health Network Practice Facilitator to implement the intervention steps and provide support/supervision of the staff members involved in the intervention
Collection of metrics for intervention evaluation purposes throughout duration of study
