The Problem We Solve

Patients still leave the hospital with old, generic, paper diet guidelines — from the 1980s! Co-founder and Registered Dietitian Jackie Arnett saw patients walk away from the hospital still not knowing what to eat for their unique clinical status. She was concerned that because people who needed to change their diet the most to better their health status, whether it was patients with hypertension or heart failure, were not provided a tool that could properly educate and positively impact the patient’s life to eat healthier. Further, according to the Centers of Disease Control, 80% of patients do not even look at those paper guidelines. With today’s technology and opportunity for scalability, Nutrify has partnered with the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics to change the way diet patient education is done.

Nutrify: The Solution to Diet Planning for Hospitals and Patients

Nutrify provides patients post discharge with a diet planning portal customized to their unique nutritional and clinical needs. It is the first enterprise only solution partnering with the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics to change how diet patient education is done. Nutrify gives the patient a tailored meal plan with custom recipes, take out suggestions with geo-location, grocery options with a scan of a bar code as well as diet tracking.
Nutrify’s precise algorithms factor in all clinical condition such as hypertension and heart failure as well as the patient’s food/drug interactions, allergies, weight management goals and even a patient’s budget for food and cultural food preferences.
