Collaboration within the hospital is an essential element in improving patient outcomes. The Alliance to Advance Patient Nutrition was formed to address the issue of malnutrition in the hospital setting – and to spotlight the importance of patient nutrition.
A new study conducted by leading researchers found that the use of oral nutritional supplements decreased the probability of 30-day hospital readmission, length of stay and costs among hospitalized Medicare patients aged 65 and over.
The Alliance has reached a milestone. One full year of advancing patient nutrition!
