Updated GMCS Specifications May 2023

May 22, 2023


Based on our work to refine the Global Malnutrition Composite Score over the past year, the latest measure specifications have now been published on the eCQI Resource Center website. Note several changes pertinent to nutrition practice have been made; for example, a referral to a hospital dietitian can meet the criteria for component #2 and clinically eligible activities (e.g., screenings) can be performed in pre-admission settings (e.g., emergency departments). For more information about these and other changes, you can view the Academy’s May 2023 Quarterly Spotlight on Malnutrition recording. Also, we will update the measure specification manual and FAQ document to reflect these latest changes on the “GMCS for IQR” webpage over the next couple of months.

Please note that external links may become inactive over time, and will be removed.
