  2. 2. Background 75% of our national health costs are related to chronic conditions that have their origin in lifestyle behaviors In dollar terms, $1.8 trillion of $2.4 trillion spent on health care is due to unhealthy lifestyle behaviors Most of our healthcare delivery is geared toward returning people back to unhealthy lifestyles and not toward changing unhealthy lifestyles PB Healthcare Business Solutions LLC Strategy, Marketing, Management for Health Care® 2
  3. 3. The Typical Patient/Provider Experience• Average amount of time for a patient/physician visit is 5-7 minutes• Physician determines the patient’s problem within average of 18 seconds• Patients increasingly complain that they do not have enough time to explain things or ask questions; patient is time-pressured and forgets 90% of what was said by the physician• Physician’s focus is on “what is your chief complaint?” rather than “what is happening in your life?” PB Healthcare Business Solutions LLC Strategy, Marketing, Management for Health Care® 3
  4. 4. What Is Integrative Health Coaching? A whole-person approach to healthy living that promotes on-going engagement (as opposed to episodic interaction) between the provider and the consumer Active planning and accountability on the part of the individual, with rigorous assistance from a highly- skilled coach/advocate PB Healthcare Business Solutions LLC Strategy, Marketing, Management for Health Care® 4
  5. 5. Why Integrative Health Coaching? A proven approach to changing personal behavioral patterns that have fueled our culture of sick (and not health- promoting) care Puts accountability in the hands of the only party that can make changes to disease-fostering health patterns: the consumer Educates consumers to learn evidence-based treatment guidelines, and to understand treatment options/costs in order to make informed decisions about when, how, and where to utilize healthcare resources PB Healthcare Business Solutions LLC Strategy, Marketing, Management for Health Care® 5

Cardiovascular Clinical Research 3-year study by Duke Integrative Medicine indicated health-coached participants had twice the reduction in inpatient admissions as non-coached participants Coached participants demonstrated positive behavior changes that reduced cardiovascular risk over a ten month period. Biggest improvements were in healthier eating, lost weight, and reduction in smoking.
