Since 2007, the Population Health Alliance (PHA) has offered members a great benefit: 25% off the National Chronic Care Professional Health Coach learning and certification program. First piloted through funding by the State of Minnesota in 2003, CCP has been adopted by over 250 purchaser, health plan, population health vendor and provider organizations. Users include CMS Innovation Center awardees, 25+ BCBS affiliates, VA centers, military health units and the largest patient-centered primary care collaboratives.
CCP is used by organizations small and large to shorten the ramp-up time for new telephonic or face-to-face population health management hires or to improve engagement, clinical or cost outcomes. Nominated for a “Best of Blue” award by the national association, HealthSciences Institute’s CCP and Registered Health Coach (RHC) training have delivered better engagement rates for three separate BCBS affiliates in independent evaluations. With some state Medicaid programs requiring CCP or RHC for provider or vendor health management program staff, CCP and RHC certification was a deciding factor for the award of a state Medicaid contract to one at least one population health vendor.
CCP was developed in collaboration by a faculty team of national experts in population health, disease state management, health behavior change and motivational interviewing health (MI). It remains the gold standard and the only certification approved for the National Health Coach Registry at www.HealthCoachRegistry.org.
