Malnutrition is a common, complicated, and
costly problem for hospitals

Malnutrition (a nutrient imbalance, deficiency or excess) is an ongoing issue in healthcare linked to higher infection rates, longer lengths of stay and increased risk of mortality—all with devastating impacts on hospital revenue and overall patient outcomes.

Insufficient tools and disconnected care processes make it difficult for hospitals to grasp and fully address the issue. In fact, 20-50% of patients experience malnutrition in the hospital setting, yet only 5-10% are diagnosed.

Junum helps hospitals understand and address malnutrition to maximize the value of their clinical team and deliver exceptional patient care.

COVID-19 + Malnutrition: A Dangerous Combination

“Nutrition status affects COVID-19 patient outcomes. The pandemic has created new challenges for conducting nutrition screenings and assessments. Nutrition is vital for an adequate immune response and missed malnutrition diagnosis puts patients at risk for worse outcomes. The unique characteristics of the COVID‐19 pandemic highlight the need to shift our approach in caring for these patients. One important way to improve care for COVID-19 patients is to treat nutrition issues aggressively at the beginning of their hospital stay.“

Dr. Juan B. Ochoa Gautier, MD, FACS, FCCM

“Malnutrition is insidious, and, coupled with a focus on treating the patient’s presenting illness, often goes unrecognized in patients presenting to the hospital or clinic. Malnutrition leads to numerous complications and prolonged recovery times. Junum is making great strides in stopping this vicious pattern.
