At the end of each year, we reflect back on all that we have accomplished. As in years past, our patients and their personal health transformation journeys inspire us. Our clinical ambassadors make it their goal to meet patients where they are in taking steps towards better health. This year, with the support of trusted primary care clinicians across Marathon nation, our patients took the reins of their health to live better lives. Whether they overcame a hurdle, went out of their comfort zone, or learned more about themselves in the process, each patient has a story to tell, and we are there for them each step of the way.

We are inspired. Across the country, over 360,000 Marathon Health members are improving their health with support, education, and encouragement at their onsite health centers. Onsite health coaching puts patients in the driver’s seat of their health by supporting them through weight loss, smoking cessation, stress, illness, and chronic conditions. After talking with their providers about their health goals and concerns, patients are able to make a realistic plan for long-lasting lifestyle changes.

There’s a difference between sick care and healthcare. You provide your workforce with a health benefit plan to take care of them when they are sick, but how do you ensure they get or stay healthy?

We believe in a radically different philosophy of healthcare. We believe the best path to sustained health improvements occur when the patient is in charge. When you empower people to take control of their health, they develop new health behaviors, make smarter healthcare decisions, improve their health, and lower costs. It’s a simple equation that yields powerful results.

Health improvement begins with small behavior change. Small modifications to your diet, exercise, sleep, or daily routine can lead to significant health improvement. When we set smaller goals, we can achieve them in a healthy and realistic way.

Health is what happens outside of the doctor’s office. From your first sip of coffee in the morning to your brushed teeth at bedtime – health happens all day long. In fact, healthcare determines only 11 percent of your overall health while social, economic, and environmental factors determine 50 percent of your overall health. As discussed in our recent white paper, where you live, work, and play factor into your overall health and the social determinants of health help clinicians develop a more complete health picture.

A simple question can launch significant behavior change, and ultimately, health improvement. By asking questions, rather than issuing orders, providers empower patients to take control of their health and develop new behaviors. But, to achieve Iasting health improvements, patients need support and resources to help them in their health journey. Health coaching provides the motivation, structure, and accountability to get them there.
