Research Study Results: Cleveland Clinic eCoaching for Weight Loss


For years, Cleveland Clinic has made a distinction between health care (helping prevent disease) and sick care (treating disease).

Recognizing that healthcare costs are increasing at a greater than eight percent per year for employers, and the root cause of these increases are largely due to preventable health risks and the claims connected to them, Dr. Michael F. Roizen created a coaching solution grounded in 25 years of learning and research from one-on-one health coaching.

Cleveland Clinic Coaching is a suite of appointment-free, 1:1 health and well-being programs that are designed to help participants create positive, lasting lifestyle changes. And the programs are clinically proven to do just that.

Download the research paper, “E-Coaching for Weight Loss,” published in the International Journal of Business, Humanities and Technology. This study tests and proves the Cleveland Clinic Coaching methodology for weight loss and demonstrates the positive, clinically significant effects of the program.

eCoaching has made all the difference to my weight management journey.  I have the option of emailing day or night if I have thoughts or comments.  I can brag about my goal achievements and I have received encouragement when I stumble.
