Hasbro Hospital to Present Webinar, "Creating an Engaging Meal Ordering Experience for Patients"

GetWellNetwork and CBORD Will Highlight How Joining a Patient-Centered Care Technology and Meal Ordering System at the Bedside Helps Improve Patient Satisfaction and Workflow Efficiencies

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - Hasbro Children's Hospital, Providence, R.I., will present how significant improvements in the way they met the meal ordering needs of their patients helped increase patient satisfaction and improve workflow efficiencies for the care team during an upcoming webinar, Creating an Engaging Meal Ordering Experience for Patients. Hosted by GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) systems, and CBORD®, the leading provider of food and nutrition management, cashless card, and access control solutions to healthcare facilities, the webinar will highlight Hasbro's integration of the GetWellNetwork and the CBORD systems.

Meal ordering has traditionally been a manual, inefficient, and occasionally frustrating process for patients and staff alike. Hasbro Children's Hospital has leveraged best practices, their brand, and two interactive technologies at the bedside to help improve the quality of the meal ordering experience for patients, families and staff.

During this webinar, attendees will discover how Hasbro:

  • Created an efficient way to manage meal orders by reducing "second trays" while improving patient and staff satisfaction
  • Established patient care consistency, including ensuring healthy meals are established from the outset
  • Implemented its own proven process for increasing adoption of this program
  • Leveraged Mr. Potato Head to make food ordering a fun experience for pediatric patients
  • Joined forces at the bedside with GetWell Town and CBORD's patient meal ordering system to help the hospital in its efforts to improve patient satisfaction and workflow efficiencies

Date: May 29, 2013
