Comments off Enhancement for handling of Patient Discharges in Meal Ordering

News from Version 15.10 A new logic has been implemented to provide a more granular handling of Patient Meal Orders on the day of Patient discharge. The cut-off time functionality for Meal Orders needed to be enhanced to enable Meal Orders based on the discharge time on the day of discharge. For Patients whose discharge time is before the new cut-off time, Tray Cards, Kitchen Lists and Container Label Print will be suppressed when printing for that day. Delegate now introduces an improved Patient display logic in Patient Meal Ordering, Mobile Meal Ordering and in delivery documents. It can be applied for cases where it is important to correctly consider Cut-Off time 3 for the Meal Time in question. In Patient...

Comments off New Option for Special Instructions

Patients Service A large number of hospitals use special instructions for Patient Meal delivery. These special instructions include information equipment needed for food intake, such as “drinking straw required” after jaw surgery. Other special instructions may be necessary for Patients that need help opening packets or cutting up their food. Special instructions can also be used for various other purposes (e.g. medical or financial information). In previous Versions, special instructions were defined in a dedicated Component Group assigned to the respective food. However, in many cases, special instructions are recurring and a more optimized method to handle them is required. Therefore, we implemented a new...

Comments off Improved Nutrients Overview on Room Service Ticket

POS Print Service A new feature has been implemented with which Nutrients can be summarized at the bottom of the Room Service Ticket. It provides a much better overview and clarity for the Users.

Comments off New Ownership Structure of Delegate Group as of 2021

Dear Customers and Business Partners Back in August we announced a change in the management of Delegate Group, at which Johann Maierhofer and Thomas Frank temporarily took over the management tasks from Martin Knopp. We have now come to a final solution that some of you might perceive as unconventional. However, we are deeply convinced that it will allow Delegate’s positive long-term and sustainable development. Martin Knopp will return to Delegate’s management together with Markus Gruber and will fully take over operational management. We were able to work out this solution with great support from Markus Gruber.  Within this framework, Martin Knopp and Markus Gruber will also bear personal...

Comments off Option to Override general Meal Location Settings per Individual Meal

News from Release 15.10 In earlier Versions the Patient Administration Module already provided options to define a global setting for a meal location where the patients will usually be served their meals. It was also possible to define specific meal locations per weekday, for example when a patient would have their meals served in the Dining room every Friday. However, in daily business it is often the case that Patients would prefer to change their meal location for a specific meal at short notice. Friends or family could be visiting and Patients will prefer to take their meals in private with them. Fine weather may motivate Patients to take their meal on the terrace or in the garden. On the other hand, when they...
