113th Abbott Nutrition Research Conference Summary

Publish Date: 2012

Abstract:

At Abbott Nutrition, we believe nutrition interventions can be a cost-effective way to improve health outcomes while reducing healthcare costs. To that end, we are committed to using nutrition health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) to demonstrate the value of nutrition for the patient, the physician, the hospital system and other key stakeholders in healthcare. Hospital malnutrition is a global issue with estimates of 20% to 50% of patients admitted to hospital classified as malnourished or at risk for malnutrition, where most of these patients are untreated. The 113th Abbott Nutrition Research Conference offered a broad global perspective on how nutritional status can influence patient outcomes and healthcare costs. This meeting explored the role of a variety of research methods that can help determine the value of nutrition interventions. We hope the enduring materials from this conference challenge you to assess the value of early nutritional intervention in your healthcare practice to help reduce the total healthcare costs for your patients, while improving patient outcomes.
