CHF PILOT PROGRAM

Project Angel Food launched a statewide pilot program for people with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) in April 2018. The purpose of the pilot is to prove our medically tailored meal (MTM) and medical nutrition therapy intervention can reduce hospital utilization rates and healthcare costs in 12 weeks. Our state directive is to serve 60 Medi-Cal patients with CHF (specifically, NYHA Class 2 and 3) the first year. We must serve their first meal within 7 days of being discharged to measure hospital utilization.

We are seeking hospital partners serving San Fernando Valley, Metro LA and South LA to refer CHF patients as soon as they get discharged. If you would like to be a partner, please contact Vivian Kanchian, our Hospital Discharge Outreach Coordinator at 323.845.1800 or vkanchian@angelfood.org.
