The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has launched an organization-wide transformation to a Whole Health System of Care, which relies heavily on Health and Wellness Coaching. A brief history and overview of Health and Wellness Coaching, in general, is provided, along with specific developments within VA, selected evaluation results, and coordination to date with the Department of Defense. As VA's Whole Health transformation reaches maturity, there is an opportunity to adopt VA's Health and Wellness Coaching approach into the Department of Defense's Total Force Fitness efforts with integration at the unit level.
