Malnutrition is a common, complicated, and costly problem for hospitals. In the US, one in three patients admitted to the hospital has malnutrition — but <7% are diagnosed.1 Junum provides the tools needed to accurately diagnose malnutrition within your existing EHR workflows and improve revenue capture accordingly.
"When care teams can diagnose malnutrition early, they can intervene sooner to help improve patient outcomes and capture the appropriate reimbursements," says Molly Hegarty, MS RDN, Founder and CEO of Junum. "As an engineer turned nutritionist, I believe strongly in using the power of technology to help clinicians better understand nutrition and its vital role in patient care. We're excited to make our SMART on FHIR, malnutrition-focused app for clinicians available to Epic users across the country."
