New Investment and Upcoming Webinar

January 05, 2021

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. Malnutrition is a common, complicated, and costly problem for hospitals. 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’s technology helps hospitals address the critical “blind spot” of nutrition in patient care today.

Junum works by helping hospitals understand and address malnutrition to maximize the value of their clinical team and deliver exceptional patient care. Our intuitively-designed tools operate within existing EHR workflows, giving clinicians easy access to nutrition insights that drive improved outcomes. Junum’s physician tool increases revenue and reduces risk by improving quality through real-time clinical decision support and malnutrition tracking.
