Abbott is more than a product provider; our goal is to partner with customers to help them deliver evidence-based malnutrition care through research, education, and quality improvement.
We’ve enhanced our eQIP program to align with the electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) related to malnutrition care.For more information regarding the eCQMs and their specifications, please follow the link below.
The Malnutrition Quality Improvement Initiative (MQii) is designed to help your organization improve malnutrition care and subsequently achieve better outcomes. The primary goal is to advance evidence-based, high-quality, patient-driven care for hospitalized older adults who are malnourished or at-risk for malnutrition.
The MQii is a project of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Avalere Health, and other stakeholders who provided expert imput through a collaborate partnership. Support was provided by Abbott.

The eQIP (Ensure Quality Improvement Project) is a nutrition-focused program designed to provide key metrics to help identify areas for improved efficiency and outcomes:
The eQIP’s quality indicators (QIs) and the new malnutrition electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) work together to empower a holistic approach to achieve your quality care goals.
QI:“A measurable element of practice performance for which there is evidence or consensus that it can be used to assess the quality, and hence change the quality, of the care provided.”
eCQM:“Electronic tools that help us measure or quantify health care processes, outcomes, patient perceptions, and organizational structure and/or systems that are associated with the ability to provide high-quality health care and/or relate to one or more quality goals for health care.”
