Dietitians Are the Experts On Food and Nutrition

This is an excerpt of an article authored by Clare Hicks, RDN, that first appeared in "The Feed" blog of Food & Nutrition Magazine, a publication of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Clare is a business analyst on the software development team at CBORD.

As a dietitian at a nutrition software company, it's my job to ensure the development team understands the business needs of our customers. The user experience—what users are thinking, feeling, and doing while using a product—is always on my mind.

If you use a nutrition or health application in your practice, your perspective has value and could help shape nutrition technologies of the future. To create software for food and nutrition professionals, a deep understanding is required of the unique challenges they face.

Dietitians are the experts on food and nutrition. Engaging in the design and implementation of nutrition informatics systems will help create future technology that enhances our practice. Technology can increase efficiency, help keep patients and clients safe, and promote health and nutrition.

Engage with health and nutrition IT vendors, investigate user communities for the applications you use, and follow along with the Academy's efforts to include nutrition in IT standards. Tomorrow's nutrition technologies will only improve through the dedicated expertise of food and nutrition experts like you.
