dc.description.abstractDue to the worldwide burden of noncommunicable disease, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) launched a global health awareness initiative in 2007 called Exercise is Medicine® (EIM®) to create awareness in healthcare providers in promoting physical activity to their patients. To transition awareness into action, Exercise is Medicine Greenville® (EIMG®) launched in 2016 through a first-of-its-kind partnership between a medical school, large healthcare system, and community organization to comprehensively integrate physical activity as a primary prevention strategy into their health system. The EIMG® model connects patients referred by their healthcare provider due to diagnosis of a physical inactivity and/or noncommunicable disease to community partners who provide evidence-based physical activity programs as a population health management strategy. The EIMG® program is inclusive of all patients referred and provides an “open door policy” through the YMCA scholarship fund. Through 2019, 210 patients completed the program (>60% graduation rate). Patients receiving usual care by their healthcare provider decreased body weight (p < 0.001) and systolic blood pressure (p = 0.042). Patients receiving usual care by their healthcare provider who were referred with hypertension decreased body weight (p = 0.001), and both systolic and diastolic blood pressure (p < 0.001). Graduating patients were highly satisfied with the program and program personnel (>4 on a 5-point Likert scale). Aligning healthcare and community partners to implement a clinic-to-community model for patients with noncommunicable disease may be a beneficial population health promotion strategy. Future efforts will be to refine the referral process, scale the model, and continue to inform national health promotion strategies. © 2022 The Author(s)
