Undernutrition

By Amy Frith, Inhealthcare Added 19th Sep, 2019 Updated 28th Oct, 2019

The undernutrition home monitoring service can be used for patients in care homes or in their own homes.

About

Patients weigh themselves or are weighed by a carer. This reading is sent by a communication channel of choice back to the healthcare professional.

In care homes, the Inhealthcare Professional app can be used to input patient readings.

Questions around oral nutritional supplement (ONS) compliance and appetite are analysed using the MUST screening tool and patients at risk of undernutrition are flagged.
