Tivity Health, a leading nutrition provider, has announced on Wednesday April 29, 2020 that the company has decided to join hands with DispatchHealth, a leading in-home healthcare provider, to deliver nutritious and healthy meals to DispatchHealth patients. According to the details released by the PR Newswire News Agency, both the companies will initially provide the services in the Denver Metro area for those patients that are hospitalized in their homes and most vulnerable to food security.
DispatchHealth further announced that it will first assess the nutritional requirement of each patient according to several factors. On the other hand, Tivity Health will deliver healthy meals to the home of the patient with 2-5 business days for each shipment.
Interim Chief Executive Officer of Tivity Health, Robert J. Greczyn said, “Healthy nutrition is key to supporting individuals who are discharged from the hospital and returning to their homes to ensure a full recovery and prevent readmission.”
“We’re very proud to be partnering with DispatchHealth, who is providing the kind of personalized care that the most vulnerable patients need to overcome the kinds of serious health issues that also drive up healthcare costs. We’re excited to support their efforts and improve the health of patients in need of quality meals and nutritional support,” Greczyn further added.
Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Kevin Riddleberger said, “Our services offer a personalized approach to high acuity healthcare in the home by not only treating their acute medical problems, but also being uniquely positioned to intervene on important identified gaps in social determinants of health. We sought a scalable nutrition solution to meet our patient’s needs in a timely manner.”
“We believe nutrition is a key element to the recovery of our patients and ultimately further improving clinical outcomes. We are excited to partner with a forward-thinking organization in Tivity Health to address the most vulnerable and their social needs in the home,” Kevin further added.
