Dietary module equips nutrition services to practice patient safety with features that can trigger alerts. The module is completely integrated with HIS-Med mantra. Patient information is securely transmitted across hospital departments. Using emerging mobile technology that interface with Dietary module, staff can directly, and therefore efficiently, input patient’s data into the system at bedside.

As the delivery of personalized patient care continues to be an ongoing initiative in Apollo Hospitals, Chennai, Dietary module is indispensable for nutrition service leaders who strive to achieve thriving patient satisfaction scores.
