To bring wellness, healing and hope to all is the Purpose statement of KentuckyOne Health. As part of that mission, and with the support of the KentuckyOne Health Partners and the Clinically Integrated Network, KentuckyOne has launched a health coaching pilot program at four primary care physician offices.
Health coaches are health professionals who work with patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure to provide education and support during the journey to a healthier lifestyle. Dr. Ron Waldridge of Shelbyville was the first to embrace the program. Here he tells us more about the benefits of health coaches for patients and for those who serve them.
