The future of digitally enabled health coaching: a proposed model

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

The epidemic of chronic diseases has started worrying health bodies. The costs of dealing with such a problem (time, money and personnel) are continuously increasing especially with an ageing population. This paper proposes a conceptual large scale digital health coaching intervention model that could be applied by any public health body to design, implement or rationalise digital health coaching solutions. The model aims to support the increase of patient empowerment and the decrease of costs by redistributing the available resources more efficiently across the whole eco-system with the use of Artificial Intelligence coaches. The model is not targeting the replacement of human presence by computers, but a coaching strategy that will enable, assist, promote interaction and help automate (where
needed and possible) resource consuming processes.
