Impact of a Nutrition Quality Improvement Program on Outcomes of Malnourished Patients

Brief description of study

A nutrition-focused QIP will be implemented as standard of care at select branches of the home health division of the health care system. The QIP will be comprised of two groups of patients, Group 1 will consist of hospitalized, at-risk/malnourished patients being discharged to home health, and Group 2 will consist of outpatients at-risk/malnourished patients enrolled in home health. Both groups will be followed for 90 days post enrollment. The QIP groups will be compared to historical controls, concurrent controls, and matched concurrent controls across other sites within the health system.
