In addition to the security controls and flexible customization options in SNO, the top ten reasons to sign up for SNO are:
- Food Cost Savings – Using food costs from major food distributors, you can estimate your food bills before you buy. Eliminate over-purchasing food goods with SNO’s Order Guide based on precise recipe quantities and specific numbers of therapeutic meal types (diabetic, renal, etc). Eliminate food waste with Production Guides that help cooks prepare accurate quantities.
- Corporate Controls – For multiple-facility operations, SNO includes reporting tools for business intelligence, enabling management to analyze food costs by facility across nation, monitor projected or actual food budgets, and track weight loss and other critical resident factors nationally or by facility. SNO’s security also enables management to separate management of multiple facilities by regions of the country, by dietician, or by any other factor.
- Rapid Answers for Inspectors, Care Team, and Family Members– Print out patient, facility or multiple-facility reports verifying resident diets, quantities served, resident weight changes and more.
- HIPAA Compliance – SNO protects resident privacy with data encryption and password-protected profiles for system users. Management with security access can produce time-stamped audit trails for all changes made in the system and by whom.
- More Accurate, Cleaner Tray Cards – Stop washing, drying, sorting and manually updating plastic cards. Instantly print fresh, accurate tray tickets for each resident, each meal, and cards are automatically sorted in serving order as they print.
- Weight Tracking for Residents – SNO helps you monitor resident weight changes by tracking the percentage of change at one, three, six, and twelve month intervals, and SNO triggers significant changes.
