Real Time Nutrition Data
HIPAA-compliant healthcare information systems interfaces built to precision HL7 standards translate into unparalleled opportunities for hospital nutrition services. Through interfaces, Vision Software receives real time information such as:
- Patient locations— admissions, discharges, transfers (ADTs). This saves clerical time in managing menus and reduces expensive late trays.
- Patient diet orders. This saves clerical time related to menus, reduces late trays, and builds a platform for automated menu checking to avert diet errors.
- Patient medication data. This enables automated food-drug interaction checking and prevents food-drug interactions that can be life threatening for your patients.
- Laboratory data: Based on your own standards, this supports automated nutrition risk screening and helps your team devote clinical resources to patients at greatest risk. It also supports automated nutritional assessment for enhanced accuracy and productivity.
Vision Software is a member of Health Level Seven (HL7) International and is SAS70 Certified.
The success of Vision Software clients proves that it’s not just data…it’s more than just software™. It’s what you do with it that counts.
