Getting Started with Food Insecurity and Nutrition Risk Screening
To integrate screening for food insecurity as part of your malnutrition quality improvement project, consider the following steps to get started and the associated resources that follow:
- Step 1: Identify patient population(s) for screening
- Step 2: Choose screening tools for food insecurity and nutrition risk
- Step 3: Determine workflow including necessary interventions and follow-up
Beginning in 2022, eligible clinicians can implement and report on a MIPS Improvement Activity (IA) focused on this workflow through CMS’ Quality Payment Program. Read more information about the MIPS IA on this MQii webpage.
