Quality Measures

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics supports RDNs and DTRs from all areas of practice in providing, measuring and reporting quality of nutrition care and services. This is paramount to our nation's health care and to the marketplace.

Support of BMI Requirement in EHRs Proves Fruitful

The Academy worked diligently to incorporate BMI into Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and now these nutrition monitoring efforts are positively impacting clinical practice, quality measures and the health of Americans by preventing and treating chronic disease.
