Nutrition informatics is a growing field within the health informatics discipline. It is a field focused on the management of information needs for dietetic practice. Nutrition informatics reaches many different areas of dietetics and has been shown to improve efficiencies, reduce costs, support research and ultimately enhance patient care. It is recommended that dietitians and nutritionists become aware of the potential benefits of nutrition informatics, become involved in technology initiatives, and take the lead in guiding the development and implementation of informatics for patient nutritional care.
Topics for this Special Issue may include but are not limited to electronic-health (e-health), mobile health (m-health), use of emerging technologies such as sensors, virtual reality or augmented reality, technological applications to clinical care processes or standardisation of terminology or algorithms embedded within the technologies.
This Special Issue on “Nutrition Informatics” aims to bring together this disparate work from research groups, and to enhance the field by creating an understanding of the topics it may include, as well as application to every day nutrition practice.
