Wyoming Department of Health's Pay-for-Participation Program Reports Positive Clinical Outcomes
Date:8/24/2009

this should translate into better outcomes as measured by reduced numbers of emergency room visits and hospitalizations, as well as fewer complications for patients."

Once a practitioner refers a client, a Healthy Together nurse health coach monitors and evaluates progress, helps eliminate barriers to care, and encourages behavior changes to improve health outcomes. Clients receive disease-specific educational materials to help manage their illness, reminders to keep medical appointments, access to a toll-free 24-hour nurse support line, and links to community resources.

"The results are impressive, and I really appreciate the assistance health coaches provide to patients with chronic illness and their families," says Catherine Depalma MD, a pediatrician in Evanston Wyoming. "And I have noticed there is a decrease in non-urgent emergency room visits since referring my patients into the program."

"We are pleased with the initial results, and look forward to working with practitioners to continually improve them," says Steven Saunders, MD, Chief Medical Officer of APS Healthcare, the organization that administers the Healthy Together program.

Phase one of the program started in July 2007, and was expanded statewide effective January 2008.
