When people with congestive heart failure ate medically tailored meals and
had easy access to other health-related tools for a period of six months, their condition improved, sometimes dramatically, according to the just-published findings of a pilot initiative jointly run by Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) in California and Mom’s Meals.
The pilot program, which offered participants fully prepared lower-sodium
meals, fresh produce and dry goods; nutrition education; a digital scale; and home visits, also resulted in a drop in medical costs.
Additional program findings will be presented June 22 at the AHIP 2022 Conference in Las Vegas by Catherine Macpherson, M.S, R.D.N., Senior Vice President of Healthcare Strategy and Chief Nutrition Officer for Mom’s Meals,
and Dr. Gabriel Uribe, DSW, IEHP Director of Community Health.
