Partner with us to help improve patient outcomes with our online nutrition education programs.
Does your hospital have outpatient nutrition services? We know your inpatient dietitians do an excellent job of giving education prior to leaving the hospital but it isn’t always enough time to dive deep into meal planning, shopping, cooking and making adjustments to their plan to assure patients are getting results. By providing continued education support hospitals can:
- Help decrease re-admissions
- Improve patient experience
- Help improve patient outcomes
You don’t have to open up your own clinic. Keep reading below and we’ll show you how we can help for no or little cost.

Benefits of our Programs
Professional Nutrition Coaches
All nutrition coaching is done with Registered Dietitians to assure your patients are getting sound advice. Counting calories or using pre-made meal plans is not always effective when someone has multiple health issues like Type 2 Diabetes and/or High Blood Pressure. Often times it may even worsen the problem by providing the wrong balance of nutrients. Our approach using personalized guidance with the backbone of a Mediterranean Diet provides an evidence based plan that is customized along the way to assure we get the best outcomes.
While group classes can be a great resource for some, they’re not for everyone. Some people may be embarrassed to join an on-site class or group. Our programs remove any privacy concerns they have for their healthcare issues. Our programs provide complete privacy for your employees and our clients report privacy is one of the most appealing parts of our programs.
Coaching Model vs. Information Portal
We are in the information age with internet access at our fingertips. The problem with weight and other nutritional related health issues isn’t necessarily lack of information, but instead it is a lack of personalization and how to break that information down in a meaningful way. Coaching helps your employees to get the right information for their situation, develop strategies, offers accountability, and helps them to work through challenges and obstacles that come up. Getting personalized attention can make the difference of someone just learning about things and taking actionable steps to get results.
We Can Service All of Your Locations
Does your hospital or clinic have offices in different locations? This can often be a challenge to provide the same wellness program benefits to each place. Our programs are all online, so your patients can meet with their dietitian from anywhere without having to schedule an appointment.
Our clients are seeing outcomes which is the most important part. We’ve helped individuals lose weight, decrease inflammation markers, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar. We’d love to help your clients do the same with a realistic approach.
I am very pleased with the balance program. My dietitian was extremely supportive and encouraging. I have learned a brand new way of healthy eating for my family and myself. Thanks for all your help and for providing me with something I can actually be successful with to be healthy. I’ve lost 47 lbs, and just had blood work that came out perfect. Thank God!, and thanks to my dietitian Sandra. She’s the best. I thank God this came my way, it saved my life for sure.
