AvanceEngage Nutrition Services

Employer Nutrition Program

The AvanceEngage Employer Nutrition Program provides high quality, customized nutrition care to your employees — improving individual health outcomes and employee satisfaction, reducing your company’s total healthcare costs, and increasing employee productivity.

Avance’s registered dietitians coach your employees and develop a personalized nutrition plan to help them reach their health goals. Medical nutrition therapy provided by a registered dietitian yields significant improvements in diabetes management, cholesterol and weight.

Avance Care dietitians can help your employees with:

Chronic Disease Management

Poorly managed chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease contribute significantly to health care costs and absenteeism. An achievable 1% decrease in hemoglobin A1c results in a $99.44 savings per patient per month or $3,600 per patient over 3 years. Research shows that each diabetes management visit with a dietitian is associated with 4.70 fewer hospitalizations per 100 person-years and up to a $9586 reduction in total hospital charges.

Participants can expect an average A1c reduction of 1.6% from completing Avance Care’s diabetes program.
