MEDICAL NUTRITION: SUPPORTING PATIENT RECOVERY
"Our ambition is to establish medical
nutrition as an integral part of healthcare, and help doctors
and carers deliver the best possible care for their patients."
REDUCING COSTS BY IMPROVING PATIENT OUTCOMES
Public spending on health care is becoming increasingly constrained. Medical nutrition supports patient recovery, bringing essential savings to both hospitals and the community. These cost savings are the result of improvements in patient health, from fewer complications all the way to reduced mortality.
For example, integrating nutrition into the care pathways of surgical patients, and ensuring they receive nutritional support in the form of oral nutritional supplements like Fortimel, reduces their length of stay in the hospital by approximately two days. This corresponds to a 13 percent reduction in hospital stay that generates savings of around 10 percent of total health care costs.
