Delegate North America & DM&A attend the Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) annually, as a sponsor, this year held at the “Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA” – October 26th -29th 2019.

Whilst, DM&A providing the fully tested and coded Items, Recipes, Nutritional Data, Menus etc. for both Patients and Retail, implemented and managed by their highly experienced, internationally recognized team of Chefs and Dietitians.

WHAT IS FNCE?
Each fall, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors the world’s largest meeting of food and nutrition experts.
This year more than 11,000 registered dietitian nutritionists, nutrition science researchers, policy makers, health-care providers and industry leaders attended the conference. Over the four days, FNCE hosted its members for stimulating keynotes, excellent educational sessions, networking events, and of course the FNCE Expo, where over 380 Vendors were present.
The Stella booth had lots of interest during the 4 days, of particular interest was the NEW Mobile Meal Ordering module that allows Patients to place their own Meal Orders using their own Devices (iPhones, Android, Tablets etc.) we call this B.Y.O.D (Bring Your Own Device.) In organizations that have implemented B.Y.O.D, they have seen increased Patients Satisfaction Scores, as Patients feel in control of their own decisions.
The excellent Stella Team that manned the booth over the 4 days was, John Lamberson (DM&A), Laura Szymanski (Delegate Healthcare), & our special guest exhibitor, Coleman Manning, Food Service Director at Mt Washington Pediatric Hospital in Mt Washington, MD. Coleman, implemented the Stella Cloud Solution over 1 year ago. Coleman answered questions the attendees had about his experience with the software. He was able to tell them how it had benefited his Patients, proven with increased Patient Satisfaction Scores and improved Staff efficiencies since the implementation.
Delegate North America and DM&A would like to thank all the attendees of FNCE 2019 and we look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis, IN. next October for FNCE 2020.
