Nutrition can play an important role in patient recovery after their hospital stay. Our home-delivered meals provide two weeks’ worth of nutritionally balanced meals to aid in recovery.
With over one-third of patients being malnourished during the time of hospital admission, health plans need a way to mitigate the high costs of readmissions and longer hospital stays. Home-delivered meals for post discharge patients have been proven to lower readmission rates, manage gaps in care, improve outcomes and produce a profitable ROI. Additionally, after meal benefits are completed, members have an opportunity to continue purchasing meals through self-pay supplemental benefits. This can additionally help your members maintain their healthy diet, combat common chronic conditions and lower utilization.
For members, the benefits of post discharge meals provide peace-of-mind, energy needed to heal and the convenience of meals delivered right at home. For health plans, it plays a critical role in benefit operations.
