This unique Appraisal is evidence and outcome-based that is used for staff who engage in either brief clinical health coaching encounters when time with the patient/client is limited (Ex: hospital bedside, home visit, exam room or outpatient clinic visit, discharge preparation, case management), or when a session of health coaching is approximately 20 minutes or longer in any setting. These performance indicators can also be integrated into your own organization's appraisal and scoring as appropriate.
The advantage of an outcome-based appraisal is two-fold:

While the ICHWC's attempt to standardize coaching certification standards internationally is a worthwhile effort, one certification does not meet the needs of all healthcare providers, nor all patients with varying acuity levels. In recognizing this distinct difference, the NSHC requires higher eligibility criteria for its Health Coach Certification; that which requires a current license, registration or certification to assess, plan, treat, implement and/or evaluate interventions in clinical and wellness settings.
Clinicians and practitioners should coach those with chronic conditions, co-morbidities, and high to moderate health risk for the same. NSHC's program of study is based on this premise. For this reason, the NSHC differentiates its Health Coach Certification and will remain independent of this consortium.
The National Society of Health Coaches is setting the gold standard for Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® in clinical practice. The model was first introduced in the summer of 2011 in North Carolina at the First Carolina Care CoachClinic®.
