Patient Experience

Every patient will be able to enjoy a smooth, personal and accurate order taking experience; enhanced by the interactivity of this ordering solution. With Saffron Patient Ordering, special requirements can be identified and attached to each individual patient and order, for example, the red tray identification.

Patients have the opportunity to see the dish they’d like to order, through uploaded images that can be shown on the tablet. At this point they can also be presented with the nutritional information ensuring they can make a more informed decision.


Card Review

Hospital Benefits

Without the need for printed menu cards, your time spent gathering orders is reduced by 50% and the financial implications are significantly reduced. The accuracy of orders is also significantly increased and ensures a more streamlined production plan in the kitchen.

The number of ‘call backs’ (meals ordered over and above because the original request wasn’t available) is due to the real time accuracy of the patient ordering solution. Also the percentage of your food wastage and labour costs are significantly reduced through the implementation of efficiency and accuracy measures.
