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

Today 20–50% of hospital patients are affected by malnutrition, closely linked to poor patient outcomes and high costs. 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. Delegate are proud to have been supporting Dr Shelley Roberts on...

Planned surgeries will need to be rescheduled, leading to additional costs and stress to both patients and staff, along with bad press and potential lawsuits. Even a single occurrence of such a complication can turn out to be extremely costly, both monetarily and for your reputation!  The risk to patients can be even higher in hospitals like yours, as often your employees are multi-tasking, leading to possible errors and oversights.   Enter Stella Stella’s Critical Access Hospital Food Service Solution (CAHFSS) has been...

The dietitian must have a conversation with a patient or family member in order to discern this information and then co-create a nutritional plan and goal(s) based on his or her learnings. Helping a patient or caregiver to connect the importance of specific food and fluids to the healing process and/or disease prevention improves one’s confidence and ability to successfully manage their condition. NUTRI-TEC is an in app, similar to MyFitnessPal that can be used by the patient and dietitian in the healthcare to improve a variety of...
