Veterans Health Administration (VHA) has embarked on a journey of cultural transformation focused on creating a personalized and patient-driven experience with health care service. In addition to training thousands of providers in the principles of whole health and expanding availability of complementary medicine, VHA also pursues developing the evidence for such care. The Polytrauma Integrative Medicine Pilot explored the feasibility of implementing health coaching in polytrauma care. The qualitative and quantitative data collected on 547 participants in the pilot shows high satisfaction with the health coaching services received and statistically significant positive changes in domains of life satisfaction and well-being.
