How a Personal Coach Can Transform Your Team's Health

How a Personal Coach Can Transform Your Team's Health

Many employees know that losing weight, increasing physical activity, and eating more wholesome foods are ways they can improve their health. However, if knowledge were all it took to change our behavior, humans would have much better health outcomes than they do today. Having a consistent connection with someone who can provide accountability is the key to long-lasting behavior change.

With six in ten Americans living with at least one chronic health condition, and four in ten living with two or more1, it’s critical to deliver a human touch that scales in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

 

That’s where One Drop’s personalized health coaching comes in.


While many chronic condition management programs attempt to mirror human relationships with bot coaching, One Drop provides actual coaches who are registered dietitians, Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists, and other credentialed health professionals, all qualified to support a wide range of health goals in a one-on-one setting.

We’ve developed a deep understanding of when an automated message is sufficient and when a message from a live coach is better for helping people reach their health goals.

Rather than offering prescriptive diets or physical activity plans, One Drop health coaches tailor their approach to each individual, helping them make decisions that support their health goals, better manage their conditions, and potentially, avoid health conditions in the first place. Through evidenced-based strategies, they steer people toward taking small steps and making reasonable efforts that contribute to health transformations that last.

Thanks to a proactive approach from a familiar coach, participants in One Drop’s program receive the tools they need to make dietary changes, remember to take their medications, adhere to care plans and, ultimately, change their habits to improve the quality of their life.

One Drop works with employers to offer a place for employees and their family members to “go” in between doctor’s visits. This is especially helpful for those with chronic conditions who need more support than traditional core benefit packages typically provide.

Today, more than 2.5 million people in 195 countries are making lasting changes to their health with the support of One Drop.

Self-care is the very thing employees can engage in, so they can give you the best of them instead of what’s left of them. To learn more about how One Drop is empowering employees to live healthier lives through personalized health coaching, download our brochure.
