St. Louis (September 12, 2018) - Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, today introduced "The Balancing Act in Healthcare Foodservice" to begin the second season of its Illuminated Path podcast series, featuring enriching discussions with healthcare leaders, thinkers and innovators on how to achieve optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes in order to deliver better care to patients.

In this episode of Illuminated Path, host Evan Danis, Intalere’s senior director of corporate communications, welcomes guest Peter Cayan, vice president of supply chain and nutrition consulting at Intalere. Together they explore the balancing act in healthcare foodservice and discuss the critical role foodservice can play in terms of patient satisfaction. Cayan shares his insights and fantastic advice on trends in healthcare nutrition and how facilities can implement some best practices that are both cost effective and can move the needle in terms of quality and satisfaction.

“There are really three parts of a foodservice operation’s performance – managing the patient or resident experience, sustainable economics and maintaining regulatory requirements. A top performing organization must really excel in all areas,” said Cayan.
