Memorial Hermann invests in telenutrition company

Houston-based Memorial Hermann Health System is investing an undisclosed amount in telenutrition company Foodsmart and is joining the company's Foodscript Network as a founding member.

The Foodsmart platform works to help users make healthier food choices through a dietary assessment and meal planning.

The platform is now accepting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program's online benefits system, according to a Jan. 10 Foodsmart news release provided to Becker's.

"Given our system's focus on addressing the social determinants of health, which are proven to have a major impact on people's health, well-being and quality of life, investing in a company like Foodsmart aligns with our organization's mission to improve health for all those we serve," Memorial Hermann CFO Alec King said.
