The Point of Care Solutions session will show how UnitedHealthcare is creating a system for the care provider community that will facilitate seamless and more intelligent interactions.

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. ET
Kirk Kerr, Ph.D., Senior Manager, Global Health Economics & Outcomes Research, Abbott Nutrition; Suela Sulo, Ph.D., Director, Global Health Economics & Outcomes Research, Abbott Nutrition
Value-based healthcare encourages primary care providers to refocus on the fundamentals of good health, with diet and lifestyle at the forefront. Poor nutrition is a common occurrence in the outpatient setting in patients with chronic conditions as well as those recently discharged from the hospital. Up to 1 in 3 older adults is either at risk of becoming or is already is poorly nourished.
Nutritional interventions, including the use of oral nutritional supplements and/or meal replacements, is a low-cost, low-risk solution clinically proven to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs, yet is rarely incorporated into patient-centered care to achieve these goals.
This webinar will demonstrate how a large hospital system and a primary care practice adopted a nutrition quality improvement program consisting of early identification of nutrition risk, intervention and education to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
