2023 NI DPG Award Winners
Nutrition Informatics DPG Innovator Award
Mary Beth Feuling, MS, RD, CD
Mary Beth has been an innovation leader since 2012 when Children's Hospital of Wisconsin adopted EPIC as their electronic medical record system. She has worked on multiple initiatives such as creating a dynamic ambulatory nutrition referral order, designing a real time productivity tracker, and integrating a daily automated nutrition screening tool.
Notably, the screening tool enabled earlier identification of nutrition risk so that nutrition care was given to patients who needed it in a timely manner, and facilitated a faster discharge. Check out the published work here.
