2022 Stronger - P139 - Telenutrition: Enhanced Use of Remote Services Before and During COVID-19 - On Demand
In March 2020, Stanford Health Care deployed video and telephone visit capabilities to its ambulatory registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The change from in-person care delivery to mostly telenutrition created a unique opportunity to explore how telenutrition changed the utilization, access and sociodemographic characteristics of patients receiving medical nutrition therapy services. Our findings show telenutrition enhanced overall access, improved timeliness of care and did not reduce access to care in vulnerable populations. Health care organizations that employ RDNs should consider deploying telenutrition services to improve access to medical nutrition therapy services.
