SureQuest Systems – providing cost-saving solutions for the $30 plus billion healthcare foodservice industry.
The healthcare foodservice market segment of the foodservice industry buys $30 plus billion worth of food every year. The foodservice market additionally is made up of schools and universities, military, correctional facilities and daycare as well as healthcare institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities homes, retirement communities.
These institutions typically rely on pre-planned menus to maintain nutrition norms, facilitate meal preparation and perform food purchasing. They are generically called “healthcare foodservice” because their residents/patients receive all their food services from the facility therefore providing a more consistent and predictable food consumption forecast. SureQuest’s software enables them to meet their required nutritional guidelines and manage their kitchen operations more efficiently and effectively.
Benefits for using nutritional software such as SureQuest’s ThreeSquares® OnDemand are clear. The software maximizes foodservice productivity, improves quality of care, increases customer satisfaction and reduces food costs, and yet, less than 25% of the nation’s 57,000 residential healthcare facilities currently utilize nutritional software. The remaining 42,000+ facilities represent a huge untapped market potential for SureQuest.
The need for nutritional software isn’t going away. The demand for effective dietary care is rapidly increasing as our nation’s population ages. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people 65 and older is estimated to double to 70 million by 2030. 4.5 million Americans are already 85+ years old, and many of them require long term residential care due to acute health problems. This number will skyrocket in the coming years. This will require even more long-term care facilities.
