A major initiative of ARAMARK Healthcare is to examine the impact of clinical support services on hospital patient, visitor, nurse, physician and employee satisfaction, and clinical outcomes. We regularly conduct proprietary research and collaborate with our industry-leading thought partners and third-party research organizations to expand this knowledge base.

The Impact of Clinical Dietitans
According to “Nutrition and Diagnosis-Related Care” (2011), 35 to 55 percent of patients are malnourished at admission and 25 to 30 percent more may become malnourished while an inpatient. With this level of prevalence, hospitals have an opportunity to engage their clinical nutrition team to improve patient care, help reduce readmissions, and increase appropriate reimbursement rates for malnutrition therapy.
Because of its experience as one of the leading employers of clinical nutrition experts in the world, ARAMARK Healthcare believes that hospitals have an opportunity to better integrate the expertise of their clinical nutrition partner to support their patients, quality, and financial outcomes.

ARAMARK Healthcare is committed to creating value for its hospital partners by helping them to balance their cost reduction needs with their needs to improve quality. We are a proud sponsor of the Healthcare Financial Management Association’s work to explore value creation in healthcare.

Understanding Nursing Satisfaction with Clinical Support Services
Over the past five years, the American Organization of Nurse Executives and ARAMARK Healthcare have built a partnership based on mutual interest in improving the hospital work and care-giving environment. By focusing on the critical inter-relationships between nursing and support services, our goal is to create a collaborative hospital work environment that improves satisfaction of nurses and support service employees, enhances processes in the delivery of care and service, and provides the best hospital experience for patients and families.
In 2008 more than 7,400 nurses across North America participated in a jointly developed survey known as Nursing Satisfaction with Support Services (NS3). The survey results are highlighted in a new white paper – Creating a Culture of Collaboration between Nursing and Support Services in the Clinical Setting.
