Comments off Delegate Customer Day 2021

Our annual Delegate Customer Day took place on May 12, 2021. However, this year’s event setting was different compared to the years before. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the Customer Day was held in virtual form and streamed live. The original plan was to hold the event at Delegate's headquarters in Vienna and at the same time showcase the newly expanded office space. As an alternative, we thought about how to make the online presentations and the broadcast as exciting and professional as possible. We have prepared some insights for you below:  The security measures All employees, speakers and guests were of course tested for the Sars-Cov 2 virus before the event to ensure a safe environment for the...

Comments off Improving hospital patients’ nutrition: New technologies and innovations

Dietary intake monitoring can help to prevent or correct malnutrition, but the busy working schedule of hospital staff, and patients’ sometimes poor recollection of what they ate in hospital, are counterproductive to an effective system. The very promising results of putting the task – as well as the responsibility – of intake tracking squarely in the patient’s hands, and supporting this with the right, easy-to-adopt and easy-to-use technology, are described in the work of Dr Shelley Roberts and her team of researchers.

Comments off Improving hospital patients’ nutrition: New technologies and innovations

At Gelderse Vallei hospital the focus in patient care is on nutrition, exercise and sleep. We believe it is important to offer our patients healthy and balanced nutrition in order to maintain or even better, improve their nutritional status, which in turn speeds up their recovery time. For years, patients have been screened for the risk of malnutrition during the hospital admittance process. Malnutrition screening was completed using the SNAQ-malnutrition screening tool for adults and growth curves and the STRONGkids-malnutrition tool for children. Optimizing the nutritional status plays a very important role in recovery during and after illness. Before Gelderse Vallei had an electronic food service system, a...
