Hospitals and health care facilities are the largest institutional food buyers, providing meals to patients, staff and visitors alike. These institutions have the potential to promote healthy, dietary choices and begin to make an impact on the health of people in their communities. Feeding patients nutritional meals is a complex process.
Vision Software can provide food and nutrition software to automate repetitive processes, save labor, and improve accuracy. The benefits of food service automation are clear and include, inventory management systems, educational/instructional/data intake, nutrient analyses and research and reimbursement for nutritional care. Vision Software allows you to automate the process of safely feeding nutritional meals to your patients.
Vision Software consults with health care organizations around the world to help ensure patients receive healthy, nutritious meals through planning and analysis of patient needs and requirements. A healthy, balanced diet is important for the general population, but in hospital settings, a number of medical conditions must be taken into consideration. The nutritional needs of hospital patients can be particularly complex and food service staff, dietitians and hospital staff must work together and consider a number of factors, some of which may be complex, such as:
- Patients with diabetes
- Patients at cardiovascular risk
- Patients who are managing their weight
- Patients with high blood pressure
- Patients suffering from constipation or irregular bowel movements
- Patients age and dietary preferences
- Allergic or food sensitivities
Easy-to-use software programs help hospitals and health care facilities meet patient’s nutrition requirements, while keeping costs down. Vision Software provides help with standardizing recipes and menus and generates shopping lists based on nutritional needs for patients making ordering easier and increasing hospital staff efficiency and accuracy, along with patient satisfaction. Use of software can track individual patients and provide access to any diet restrictions due to allergy or food intolerance as well and patient’s food preferences and can even track such things as patient’s weight gain or loss and reactions to foods and ingredients.
Vision Software helps providers monitor patient nutrition, ensure patient safety as well as reduce food costs and food waste. Meeting patient’s nutritional needs is an essential part of their treatment and healing process and it is vital for all members of the health care team to be informed and recognize the role they play in patient recovery.
