Impact of malnutrition on a case?


on behalf of my management, I was asked to  to see if anyone is aware how to pull up data showing how documenting  malnutrition can impact CMI/SOI/ROM etc.

Since, it is often coded as a secondary diagnosis, and often it is not the only cc/mcc on the case, how can one calculate the impact? Also, considering that it could come with any DRG or APR-DRG, how is this possible to calculate?

As far as SOI/ROM score, I think it can be visible for cases that are APR-DRG, but I am  not sure how that data could be extracted.

Has any one of you had experience getting that data?

Secondarily, do any of your Registered Dietitians send quires on malnutrition.

Thank you,
