Katy Gallagher, ACT Chief Minister and Minister for Health, has credited Canberra Hospital’s two new food management systems with improving patient experience.
Canberra Hospital’s MyMeal system, which can create custom patient menus, was launched earlier this year. The DIETpas system, which accesses patient information to generate orders suited to the patient’s specific requirements, was introduced to accompany it last month.
“[The] timely use of the integrated patient diet ordering system ensures the patient receives the right dietary requirements, at the right location, at the right time[…]
These new systems will streamline the tasks associated with food service delivery and make it easier to manage the transfer of patient meals when moved from ward to ward.
A significant reduction in wasted meals will also be achieved because of the accurate information provided by DIETpas,” the Chief Minister concluded.
