Apps, Apps, and More Apps: The Science and Art of Incorporating Mobile Health Apps into Clinical Practice

Mobile Health Applications (Apps) have become powerful tools to help individuals develop positive behavior changes and achieve their health goals. This session will cover research on apps, benefits of leveraging apps in practice, as well as limitations facing broader adoption. Speaker will share how nutrition professionals can integrate apps through a standardized framework, known as the Identify-Configure-Collaborate (ICC) for technology-enabled care. Use of the ICC Framework helps empower the nutrition professional to lead data-driven discussions and provide the necessary support for onboarding and collaboration with their patients to improve health outcomes and quality of life.
