Wellness Coach

Kansas City, Missouri, United States

Health Care Delivery

Job Description

At our four Kansas City campuses, Cerner Associates and their family members can receive world class primary care at the Healthe Clinic, a state-of-the-art medical clinic and pharmacy. Our innovative personal health management clinics offer primary and preventative care services for the entire family. Our proactive, educative approach encourages fellow associates and their families to adopt healthy lifestyles and practices.

As a Wellness Coach, you will actively coach members with chronic conditions towards a healthier state of being and will also work with members who are in a pre-condition state as well as those who are focused on maintaining overall well-being. Working in a care team model (physician, medical assistant, nurse, and wellness coach), you ensure outstanding care to members. Through your strong interpersonal skills, you will coach members on a continuum of risks (ranging from single risk factor, to pre-condition status, to diagnosed condition status); perform individualized assessments, conduct Motivational interviews, assess the member's readiness to change, and develop unique plans of care for each member; and work with members on their motivation and barriers to change by assessing importance and confidence in goals.

As a Wellness Coach, you must be capable of utilizing multiple interventions including educating, advocating, guiding, and empowering members to achieve health related goals. Additional responsibilities include: evaluating the effectiveness of interventions and collaborating with other health professionals as needed including pharmacists, dieticians, therapists, and healthcare providers; and collaborate with the HR benefits and wellness team to provide holistic and scalable wellness services to a broad range of associates in the form of wellness classes and groups.
