Food Menu with Nutritional and Dietary Management
The Nutrio application provides images of the menu available, a description of the meal and also informs patients of the nutritional content.

The Nutrio service has been implemented in many hospitals and care facilities
Modernise Catering and reduce Food Waste
The current financial constraints on hospitals are creating incentives to develop robust cost improvement plans. Nutrio electronic meal ordering helps to improve the efficiency of hospitals catering service by modernising the ways in which patients can choose and order meals.
Based upon a economic analysis of a typical hospital the service is estimated to realise $ 46K of cost savings per annum from modernising order processing $64K from reducing food wastage and 56K from helping to reduce patient length of stay . In total these benefits are estimated to amount to $166K per annum. In addition to these benefits by allowing greater choice of menu and facilitating more timely meal ordering, the service can help to deliver wider benefits to patients by improving nutrition. Nutrition can help to drive patients quality of life and wellbeing.
Improve Patient Care and Satisfaction
The replacement of paper based methods of meal ordering with electronic meal ordering avoids the need to print distribute and collect menus. For a typical 500 bed hospital around 365000 menus per annum no longer need to be printed generating estimated at $12K per annum. Additionally, an estimated $30K per annum of staff costs are avoided through time saved on processing distributing and collecting menu’s The total savings are estimated to be $42K per annum
Hospitals can also realise productivity benefits from reductions in food wastage and patient length of stay. Estimated to be $110K per annum. These benefits are driven by three mechanisms:
