-Tray Card System
Our Tray Card system, Nutritious Solutions, helps improve tray accuracy by using visual cues to promote diet accuracy and tray line service efficiency. The easy to use interactive interface feature facilitates interdepartmental communication, including new guest diet orders, diet changes, preferences, and improved tray delivery times, and reduces countless frustrations associated with daily operations. The tray card system integrates to streamline order processing. This enables a facility to make up-to-date adjustments on production via changes in orders (i.e. NPO, discharge, etc.). The Nutritious Solutions GPO and tray card systems are a win-win for your organization in terms of improving tray accuracy, reducing waste, reducing labor costs for dietary and nursing, and improving resident satisfaction levels.
