Identifying and treating malnutrition across the continuum of care can help prevent illness or relapse and maximize the effectiveness of other medical treatments. In this podcast, Jamie Partridge, PhD, MBA—Abbott’s Director of Global Health Economics, Outcomes Research and Health Policy—discusses a recent study evaluating the effect of a nutrition‐focused quality improvement program (QIP) conducted in a home health agency (HHA) on hospitalization rates and healthcare costs incurred over 90 days. You can find a manuscript of the study—Reducing Hospitalizations & Costs: A Home Health Nutrition-Focused Quality Improvement Program—in JPEN (24 June 2019).
