The Center for Telehealth and eHealth Law–for which the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is a member–is conducting a study to calculate the cost vs. benefit and cost vs. effectiveness of telehealth services, which is an important step for its federal advocacy efforts to maintain telehealth services beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are an RDN who provides MNT via telehealth using an electronic medical record and are interested in providing data on these encounters to CTeL, please review their data request letter and discuss this opportunity with your leadership. Data is needed by the end of May, if possible. Please contact Jason Goldwater or Dr. Yael Harris with any questions.
