Track RDNs are currently doing much work in the practice setting that provides evidence of best practices in patient care. This evidence can support better reimbursement for MNT and ultimately increased patient access to care. Through a case study scenario tracking patient outcomes subsequent to RDN interventions for type 2 diabetes (T2D), attendees will be exposed to the process of retrospective chart review (RCR).
Speakers will facilitate roundtable discussion of potential applications of the RCR in attendees' practice settings. Avenues for dissemination of outcomes of the efficacy of the RDN will be explored including key messages to healthcare administrators, medical providers, private and public payers, and public policy leaders to further identify the role of the RDN in current and emerging healthcare models. The ultimate goal, to improve patient access to nutrition care.
