We are receiving data from our vendor partners who capture interaction between coaches and patients. These coaches have a master’s degree in social sciences. The coaches are providing coaching in the cognitive behavioral therapy arena for example - depression, insomnia. anxiety etc.
The attributes that are captured are Date Coaching started and Date Coaching ended and the status along with patient identifier. The interaction itself seems like an encounter, but since the coach does not fall under a health care provider for example a doctor, nurse or pharmacist, we wanted to confirm if these interactions can be captured as an Encounter. Any guidance is much appreciated!
Thank you very much
