Did you know that 5% of individuals cost 50% of our national healthcare expenditure?
What if we could help lower costs for this high-risk, high-need population, while keeping them healthy and in their homes? We can with access to medically-tailored meals.
FNS and National Healthcare Reform
Access to appropriate food and nutrition services (FNS) are increasingly recognized as key to accomplishing better health outcomes, lower cost of care and improved patient satisfaction for critically and chronically ill individuals.
Better Health Outcomes
When clients get effective FNS and become food secure, they then keep scheduled primary care visits, score higher on health functioning, are at lower risk for inpatient hospital stays and are more likely to take their medicines.
Lower Healthcare Costs
Research shows that adding medically tailored food to a care plan dramatically reduces healthcare costs, up to $12,000 per member, per month . If hospitalized, FNS clients' costs were 30% lower, their hospital length of stay was cut by 37% and they were 20% more likely to be able to be discharged to their homes rather than a more expensive institution . Furthermore, FNS are a very inexpensive intervention. For each day in a hospital saved, you can feed a person a medically-tailored diet for half a year.
Improved Patient Satisfaction
Studies show nutrition counseling improves quality of life . Clients overwhelmingly report that services help them live more independently, eat more nutritiously and manage their medical treatment more effectively.
