The market for health and fitness is changing. As a result of the Affordable Care Act and of the transition to Population Health Management in the United States, healthcare systems are looking into community care partnerships that will offer proven, high-impact, low-cost solutions for managing non-communicable diseases (NCDs). There is a growing need for qualified and trusted professionals and they are in high demand. Exercise professionals are seen as a crucial part of the healthcare network within the EIM solution.
Fitness organizations have an opportunity to be part of this shift by preparing its members to be trusted referral sources. With the introduction of the EIM Credential, exercise professionals can now become a more integrated part of the healthcare system and work with special populations, those with chronic diseases and other health-related conditions.
