In its FY 2023 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) draft rule, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed including a new Global Malnutrition Composite Score measure in the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program. If incorporated in the CMS final IPPS rule, this malnutrition measure would be the 1st nutrition-focused quality measure included in any CMS payment program and would help hospitals and patients better benefit from identifying and addressing malnutrition.
