second place - halton healthcare

Congratulations to Halton Healthcare for placing second in the Data Champion category.

Located in Canada, Halton Healthcare is comprised of three community hospitals (Georgetown Hospital, Milton District Hospital, and Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital).

By implementing Computrition’s software system, the Nutrition & Food Services department at Halton Healthcare has successfully enhanced operational efficiencies utilizing:

Foodservice Operations Management

  • Through inventory management, purchasing, and requisitions, the production team achieved continuous forecasting, resulting in reduced waste and enhanced inventory accuracy including updated item specifications and costs, and
  • Automation of orders resulting in substantial time savings.

Tray inMotion Elite

  • Provided real-time tray tracking data,
  • Patient wristband scanning reducing patient risks,
  • Daily reports ensuring they meet their target meal delivery times and verify the patient scanning process with the tray delivery staff, and
  • Reduced late trays from an average of 15-20 late trays to 2-3 late trays.

Inventory Connect

  • Transformed their floor stock management processes, going from high-risk manual methods to an automated system to ensure accurate information is provided to the finance team.
  • Utilized an iPad for requisitions to record stock when delivering bulk nourishments, which resulted in significant cost and labor savings.
  • Printed month end reports by cost center to track the total stock left on each unit, significantly saving time and providing accurate costing to finance.
  • Previously, clerks dedicated two hours daily to manually enter data and calculations for floor stock supplies. Through process improvements, Halton Healthcare has saved 60 hours per month, resulting in cost savings of $2,000 per month ($24,000 annually).

second place - harris health system

Congratulations to Harris Health System on your achievement as the second-place winner of the Innovator Award!

Having only been a Computrition customer since 2020, Harris Health System, based in Texas, underwent a transition from contract food service to a self-operated model.

This encompassed changes in menu management software, retail point-of-sale (POS) system, and overall management. The transition involved two hospitals and five retail locations.

  • Despite facing numerous constraints, Harris Health System partnered with Computrition to develop a completely customized menu from scratch.
  • The team achieved seamless integration of Hospitality Suite and iprint labeling system within the designated project period, ensuring successful implementation.
  • The Harris Health team successfully used Tray inMotion Elite to improve the robustness of its operation and it has proven to be a key tool in managing patient safety.
  • Future implementation plans include implementing SPOON later in 2023, enabling nurses to conveniently order their meals online and pick them up within 15 minutes of placing the order.



Geisinger, located in Danville, PA, has been a customer of Computrition for almost 20 years and we are happy to name them as our Prodigy Transformer!

Geisinger was one of the early adopters of Inventory Connect (IC) to manage floor stock in inpatient units and for production purposes.
  • Inventory Connect allows the buyers to operate more efficiently and in a streamlined way, ensuring accuracy.
  • Mobile-friendly use of iPads and mobile computer carts are utilized with Inventory Connect.
  • Decreased human error when ordering as IC has minimized the paper trail.
  • IC ensures accuracy by automatically sending the order directly to the individual who fulfills it and then closes the request.
