The Nutrition Care Process is a systematic approach to providing high quality nutrition care and concise communications with medical staff. Each assessment type is assigned specific criteria (Terminology/Codes) ensuring the generation of a comprehensive, compliant and accurate nutritional summary for the MD. The standardization of the Process allows any level of practitioner to use the system with confidence.
