Informatics and Technology
Forecasts & Trends for Future Practice: What are examples of ways technology such as informatics, connectivity, artificial intelligence and machine leaning, and more can be used in nutrition practice — now and in the future? How will RDNs and NDTRs thrive in a changing technological landscape? Read the brief: Navigating Future Practice: Technology
Technology may be defined broadly to include both hardware and software, the systems that connect them, the data sets that populate them, and the ways people develop and apply these tools to meet the needs of end-users. Across the profession, all practitioners are affected by technological advancements that are changing the very nature of food systems, the ways people live and work, and the ways people provide and access food, nutrition information, and healthcare. In addition to leveraging and helping clients navigate new technologies, RDNs and NDTRs can bring nutrition expertise to the development of new tools, support data integrity, and ensure that technologies enhance rather than detract from human nutrition and health equity.
