The Nutrition-Readmission Connection 

Studies show that good nutrition is foundational to the healing process after a hospital stay because it promotes recovery and independence, and better health helps reduce readmissions. 

  • As many as half of patients admitted to the hospital are at risk for malnutrition or are malnourished, particularly older adults.
  • A study published by Avalere Health in partnership with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and other stakeholders, showed that malnourished adult inpatients have a 54% higher likelihood of 30-day hospital readmissions than patients who are well-nourished.
  • The average cost per readmission were 26-34% higher for patients with malnutrition compared to those without malnutrition.

One Solution: Home-Delivered Meals

Post-discharge meals have proven to be a big deterrent to hospital readmissions, since post-discharge meals help ensure patients continue to receive proper nutrition once they leave the hospital.

This is especially key for patients suffering from a chronic condition, which puts them at risk for malnutrition. Patients with chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease may require a diet low in sugar, fat, sodium or cholesterol.  

Post-discharge meals are equally important to individuals who simply cannot prepare meals for themselves or whose caretakers don’t know how to fulfill their nutritional needs, as well as those who are food insecure.
