Choice is at the heart of the solutions we provide within private hospitals.
At the core is our expertise and experience in creating solutions to support staff and patients, and it is supplemented by state-of-the-art technology enabling billing of patients for treatments, newspapers, and any other options they choose to purchase.
We understand that private hospitals must deliver value for money while also offering alternatives to the fixed menu cycle. Patients can order using iPads or tablets at their bedside and our methods of stock and portion control are integral to running an efficient catering service offering high quality food.
Dietary analysis is central to our comprehensive recipe database thereby keeping alerts high for allergens or special diets.
Production planning and menu planning work hand-in-hand on Datasym systems. Ingredients are compared in real-time using Menumark to ensure that you stick to budget while still planning the menu that you know will be best for the patients.
"Our working relationship with Datasym has been incredibly productive; not only reducing food waste levels but having the capacity to monitor progress on individual wards and this has been a huge benefit. The time spent with staff to train, support and confidence build when moving to an electronic system is vital and Datasym have made great progress. Our focus is on the patients and the correct ordering of food needs to be a simple and enjoyable experience."
Catering Manager and HCA Chairman, Musgrove Park Hospital -Taunton & Somerset NHS Foundation Trust
"The Menumark system from Datasym allows the multi-disciplinary team to easily access detailed information about our hospital food from the nutritional data and allergens to the actual recipe ingredients and cooking methods used, this allows us to ensure that nutritional standards are met and supports us with menu planning.
Pictures of the menu items allow patients to see what they are ordering. Front line staff can easily view the allergen information which supports those with food allergies choosing foods that are safe to eat. Having the nutritional data also viewable for staff and patients gives the ability to help people make informed decisions in supporting there nutritional requirements whilst in hospital. It gives ward teams including Dietitians information to support the nutritional care plans for our patients from those that are nutritionally well to those who are nutritionally vulnerable

"We have been very happy with Datasym as a company, the level of support we have received has been great. When equipment fails (which has been very minimal) the support has been prompt and to a high standard."
