Digital health company lands Nestle partnership

Amwell, a company that provides a digital health platform to patients, announced a partnership with Nestle Health Science, a nutrition-focused business unit of Nestle.

The first part of the partnership will allow post-surgical patients to receive a recovery drink and online educational content. Through the program, patients' progress and adherence will be tracked, allowing clinicians to intervene if they need to, according to an Oct. 5 Amwell news release.

"This is the first of several initiatives we're collaborating on to empower healthier lives through nutrition. The unique partnership combines Amwell's proven ability to automate patient journeys with Nestle's expertise in nutrition sciences and digital nutrition services," Murray Brozinsky, Amwell chief strategy officer, said in the news release. "Bringing together Amwell's empathetic, clinically intelligent, data-driven virtual companions and Nestlé Health Science's nutritional drink, content and services, will better prepare patients for surgery with the goal of improving outcomes while reducing hospital stays, risk of post-surgical complications and cost. It's a great example of how technology plus nutrition can nourish those who need extra care."
