Are you looking for Long-Term Care Patient Menu Ordering Software?
As the median age of patients entering long-term care gets increasingly younger, it’s more important than ever to offer seniors more choices when it comes to foodservice. Factors like menu variety, food quality, and the appearance of dining facilities are influencing the choices seniors make when entering long-term care. For your residents, meals shared with family, friends, and members of their health care community bring a sense of normalcy to long-term care, give patients something to look forward to, and help residents live happier, more satisfied lives.
With long-term care patient menu ordering software form Vision Software, residents in long-term care can order meals from specialized menus that offer safety and flexibility. By connecting the dietary office with patient charts, nutritional staff have real-time access to allergy information, patient taste preferences, prescribed nutrients and supplements, and possible food-drug interactions.
Many of the menu management tools draw on data provided in real time through healthcare information system (HL7) interfaces. The interfaces feed information into the dietary information system, eliminating redundant keyboard entry—and increasing productivity. Mobile menus use portable wireless technologies, including tablets, to give food service staff the ability to take patient orders at the bedside. The software manages all of the relevant patient and menu information, allowing for accurate and timely input of the patient selections. From a tablet, you can make menu selections, manage meal plans, add write-ins, order nourishments, and schedule delivery times. By interfacing patient menu ordering software with the ADT system in your long-term care facility, members of your nutrition team are alerted to changes in resident status that can delay service times and affect meal quality.
