Find out more about the Patient-Center Medical Home, the Neighborhood model and a team-based approach of shared communication. Despite the Healthy People 2020 national objectives, the current healthcare system limits the delivery of nutrition counseling in the primary care setting as a way to increase visits that address lifestyle behaviors.  There are numerous opportunities for the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), as well as other health care professionals, to impact the health of the community, while serving as a valuable resource for the medical home. Information on the uses of technology to conduct assessments, document visits and close the communication loop will be shared as a tool to enhance more-complete patient care management.
