Technology vendors CBORD and Document Storage Systems have collaborated to develop an interface that will allow the Dept. of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMC) to connect CBORD's Patient Foodservice Technology directly with VistA, the VA's electronic health record. The initiative allows for real-time ADT and diet order updates and is critical to ensure food safety and streamline workflows.
"Patient engagement with meal orders is key to improving patient nutrition, safety, and overall satisfaction," says CBORD President Max Steinhardt. "Our partnership with DSS is a first step in providing veterans safe, nutritious meals and a more satisfying hospital experience. Working alongside DSS and foodservice directors from the VA, we will help drive a new level of clinical nutrition care to our nation's veterans ultimately paving the way for better outcomes and reduced readmissions."
"We're excited to partner with CBORD to help improve nutrition care, meal safety, and patient satisfaction for our nation's veterans," adds DSS President/CEO Mark Byers. "By working to integrate the CBORD nutrition solutions with VistA, we're able to help provide a more comprehensive picture of veterans' health for more targeted care delivery."
