Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are near universal in the United States. Nutrition content varies dramatically from vendor to vendor – and even between products of a single vendor. Learn how motivated dietitians partnered with an EHR vendor and the Academy to adapt nutrition documentation to present day needs. As health care undergoes revolutionary changes from "pay for performance" and "patient generated data" – nutrition documentation and care must adapt to the present generation. This session provides a glimpse of a collaborative project that addresses design and "secondary use" of nutrition data documentation using a top EHR vendor and the nutrition expertise of seasoned registered dietitian nutritionists. This work supports the use of nutrition data design for use in Malnutrition electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQM), nutrition inclusion in Transitions of Care via the IMPACT (Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation) Act, and outcomes reporting. This work addresses U.S. mandates of certain standards which align coded data necessary for patient outcomes and consistent interoperability of health information.
