Abstract:

Hospitals, medium and large medical practices and other health care facilities will be able to improve the quality of care for patients with malnutrition and reduce hospital stays and costs through a new opportunity resulting from work by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Avalere Health that was recently approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently finalized its proposal to include the Global Malnutrition Composite Score in its Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program in the 2023 Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule.
