GREENFIELD, Wis., March 1 TherapEase Cuisine, Inc. announces that it has partnered with Aurora Health Care of Milwaukee, WI to provide its one-of-a-kind online nutritional service and meal-planning program for Aurora's cancer patients. The web-based program can be accessed by logging-on to www.therapeasecuisine.com.
TherapEase Cuisine was founded by cancer survivors to create wide-spread access to customized nutritional guidelines for cancer patients undergoing treatment. The program is based on accepted oncology-dietetic practice, and was developed by registered dietitians. It is available to cancer patients directly and through their health care providers to meet the growing demand that patients have for individualized nutritional support that complements their treatment plans.
"We are very excited that Aurora has licensed our system to provide their patients with 24x7 access to the best online source of oncology dietetic information available," said Vivian Roe, Founder and COO of TherapEase Cuisine. "While nutrition is a huge concern for all cancer patients, we know that nationwide about 80% of cancer patients never have a single nutritional consultation. This innovative system will provide Aurora patients with the tools they need to stay healthy and suffer fewer side effects from their treatment."
Aurora's Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic within their brand new hospital in Summit, WI will be the first Aurora site to deliver this new technology-enabled nutritional service. Aurora's patients will receive expert nutritional recommendations customized to their diagnosis and individual needs wherever they access the Internet.
"TherapEase Cuisine is very proud to have Aurora Health Care, the largest health system in Wisconsin, as one of our healthcare provider customers," said James W. Hermann, President and CEO of TherapEase Cuisine. "Our service is a great fit with their extensive cancer care program that spans 13 hospitals and treats 8,000 patients annually."
TherapEase Cuisine program participants receive expert advice customized to their individual diagnosis, treatment and criteria; as well as regular re-assessment and modifications based on symptoms and side effects as they materialize. The system also includes a library of educational information including new studies and developments in the field of oncology dietetics as they develop.
