Patients with obesity who received personalized electronic health record-based coaching in addition to using EHR tools to track their physical activity and diet maintained weight loss better that those who used EHR tools alone, according to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
Molly B. Conroy, MD, MPH, chief of the division of general internal medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine, told Healio Primary Care that the findings show that “even though maintaining weight loss is challenging, patients can be more successful when they receive supportive coaching.”
