VPS has released the Nutrition Module in the VPS application. Following a pilot study and feedback from participating sites, VPS streamlined the module and is opening participation to the entire VPS community. The AHRQ-CMS Pediatric Quality Measures Program includes the “Initial Baseline Screen of Nutritional Status for Every Patient Within 24 Hours of Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)”. The Joint Commission requires that hospitals complete nutrition screening within 24 hours after inpatient admission.
Your unit may participate in the nutrition module by adding it to your Data Collection Profile and collecting data beginning with all discharges on October 1st or later. Information on training may be obtained by emailing the VPS HelpDesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
