Exercise is Medicine® - Ten Years and Counting: Looking Back, Moving Forward
By: Walter R. Thompson, PhD, FACSM, Adrian Hutber, PhD, and Mark Stoutenberg, PhD, MSPH
As U.S. health care continues its transition from volume- to value-based care, Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) has a unique opportunity to be a major contributor and position itself as the primary resource for physical activity by linking clinical settings with community care, with a large EIM Credentialed workforce providing a key component of this connection. Looking into the future, EIM strives to develop and maintain partnership with a majority of U.S. health systems to connect patients to a multitude of self- and professionally-guided physical activity interventions for the treatment and prevention of a large number of chronic diseases, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular risk factors and many more. In addition to partnering with major U.S. health systems, the EIM Global Center strives to continually develop new clinic tools to aid health care providers in integrating physical activity in their health system, as well as tools that allow exercise professionals to better work with patients as an extended member of the health care team. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, EIM simultaneously seeks to reduce physical activity-related health inequities by partnering with low-resource health settings to bring affordable, low cost physical activity options to low income communities.
