This technology will revolutionize dietary assessment.
DETROIT (PRWEB) December 18, 2019
Diet ID™, a digital health toolkit that makes dietary assessment quick and easy, and facilitates dietary behavior change while saving time and reducing cost, is now established as a reimbursable part of medical nutrition therapy (MNT). Adoption of this powerful innovation can actually enhance the bottom line.
For Dr. John Gobble, DrPH, RDN, LD, FACLM, a provider for Lifestyle Medicine Group in Oregon and Washington, Diet ID has been successful in achieving a 100% reimbursement rate. “Dietary analysis takes up a major portion of my medical nutrition therapy (MNT) interview, a requirement for health plan reimbursement of procedure codes 97802, 97803, and S9740,” he says.
Because diet is the leading predictor of disease risk and all-cause mortality, diet assessment is a critical component of assessing health and overall risk. But traditional methods of diet assessment are time-consuming, tedious, and often inaccurate, all of which compromise outcomes. “The assessment needs to be time efficient and yet accurate enough to show change over time,” says Gobble. “The Diet ID assessment fits the bill. Not only does it take less time to complete than other methods, it also engages the client as we explore better eating habits using the dietary quality score provided by Diet ID.”
Diet ID helps patients succeed by providing quality health service solutions in a competitive marketplace. The tools help give practitioners time back to do what they do best -- connect with patients. That’s because Diet provides a frictionless assessment that generates actionable insights in real time, and that flow can be reimbursed.
Dr. Gobble says, “This technology will revolutionize dietary assessment.”
