Health informatics infrastructure (ANDHII)


The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Health Informatics Infrastructure (ANDHII®) enables RDNs to track nutrition care outcomes and advance evidence-based nutrition practice research. ANDHII is a secure online data collection tool accessible from any web or mobile connected device. Using familiar nutrition terminology and a format that makes it easy to integrate into practice workflow, de-identified case data is recorded. The knowledge gained through the collection and analysis of information in ANDHII will add to the evidence base for nutrition practice and help ensure high-quality patient care.

CDR-credentialed practitioners and Academy members, including students, can all register to use ANDHII.

Participating in ANDHII at Your Facility

ANDHII has been designed to work within the regulations and guidance issued by the Office for Civil Rights and Office for Human Research Protections so that the data collected would not be Protected Health Information and the collection process would not constitute Human Subjects Research. As a result, using ANDHII in accordance with regulations and its End User License Agreement for the collection of de-identified data regarding routine care would not require HIPAA Authorizations, Business Associate Agreements, or local Institutional Review. We provide the letter linked below to aid potential participants in discussing how we have accomplished this with their facility's Privacy Officer. Letter to Privacy Officer
