Brought to you by the Center for Lifelong Learning with a special thank you to the content writer and presenter, Lindsey Hoggle, MS, RDN, PMP. Planned with the Nutrition Informatics Committee, the NIC Consumer Health Informatics Workgroup and the Interoperability and Standards Committee.

In keeping with the ever changing world of health care, the Academy continues to hold discussions on nutrition and the use of technology to perform tasks that Academy members do daily. As nutrition is a data rich profession, it is critical to apply new methods of processing and using data in all areas of the profession. This module provides a history of the resources and tools which support Nutrition Informatics work at the Academy, Academy resources for use in digital environments, informatics concepts relevant to nutrition, and initiatives which support informatics across all areas of dietetic practice. The drivers of health information technology adoption and use will be discussed, including the recent unprecedented U.S. adoption rates of electronic health information technology (or health IT) and systems, including Electronic Health Records (EHR).
