Health Coach

The Health Coach is responsible for a panel of patients and, in collaboration with other members of an integrated primary care team, helps patients meet their preventive, chronic and acute care needs. Health Coaches engage patients and encourage them to take an active role in their health by providing them with the tools necessary to make healthy lifestyle choices and adopt lifelong healthy behaviors.

The Health Coach's primary responsibilities center around establishing trusting, supportive, collaborative relationships with patients and their families. Health Coaches build relationships with patients in a clinical setting, learning the patient's health goals while checking their vitals, engaging the patient in long-term lifestyle changes while helping them more immediately in sick visits, and actively listening to and supporting the patient, then coordinating a hospital or specialist service when necessary. Health Coaches work alongside medical providers, other health coaches and a behavioral health specialist in a collaborative, empathetic team to build these relationships.

Reporting to the Clinical Team Manager, Health Coaches take on specific clinical, coaching, and operational responsibilities:


  • Actively engage a panel of patients and facilitate the implementation of their customized care plans

  • Greet patients and families in reception, bring them back to rooms, facilitate the creation of an agenda, and work with the patient to ensure a pragmatic care plan is established.

  • Implement a range of patient-centered skills including: capturing relevant information about the patient's health and healthcare experience, taking vitals, collecting measurements, administering point-of-care testing, and performing standard screening assessments

  • Take responsibility (in partnership with providers) for the health of a population of patients and monitor and track whether those patients are up to date on preventive measures

  • Learn about the chronic health conditions that span the patient population

  • Provide patient education on chronic disease management on which the health coach will be trained


  • Establish meaningful healing relationships with members and families

  • Learn to employ confidence-promoting techniques in patient communication and develop patient self-efficacy to better manage health

  • Communicate with patients by phone and email and invite in the physician when necessary.

  • Help patients understand their chronic conditions, why they matter, and how they can manage them

  • Coach patients using an action-planning model based on motivational interviewing techniques

  • Collaborate with other team members to facilitate group events and classes for patients


  • Provide administrative support in order to assist with the coordination of care across the continuum, such as: scheduling appointments with specialists, coordinating referrals, sharing or transferring information with the patient's internal and external care team

  • Help to field incoming phone calls, handle front desk inquiries, ensure general upkeep of the clinical space, and participate broadly in the daily operations of a primary care practice

  • Learn core insurance benefits to ensure patients take full advantage of them and are well-connected with insurance specialists

  • Present on areas of interest/expertise in health and wellness to team members and patients

  • Contribute to open team forums on problems and process improvements by listening, sharing input and ideas, and enacting decisions and plans.

Essential Qualifications:

  • Fluency in Spanish highly preferred

  • Experience in a service environment

  • Able to articulate Iora values in relation to service and performance

  • Interpersonal communication skills with exceptional listening abilities

  • Compassionate, kind, and open-minded

  • Teamwork experience

  • Written communication skills

  • Excited about joining a young organization transitioning from its start up phase to one with more structured processes

  • Some clinical experience is a plus, such as EMT, MA, CNA, or Phlebotomy certification
