Tray tickets and labels include a choice of two patient identifiers to meet Joint Commission International Patient Safety Standards.

Comprehensive patient card file records allow staff access to the complete diet order, allergy, and assessment history. Allergy and preference information is automatically carried forward upon readmission so nothing gets missed.

Track patients by acuity level or designated services with the flexibility of user-defined protocols.

The system allows the patient to select meals in advance and these are stored until the requested mealtime arrives.
