EHR Use Spreads Across the Country

Electronic Health Record adoption has increased since 2009 when the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health EHR Incentive Program began. With the increase in uptake, the Academy and its members must continue to avidly advocate for nutrition inclusion in EHR to optimize the health of patients.

The Department of Health and Human Services reported it has already met and exceeded its goal for 50 percent of doctor offices and 80 percent of eligible hospitals to have EHRs by the end of 2013. Academy members working in health-care facilities should be active in getting nutrition data accurately incorporated into EHR to ensure patients receive appropriate nutrition care.

The Academy will continue to advocate for nutrition inclusion in the regulations of HITECH to make sure patients receive the best nutrition services.
