Toughbooks used at Birmingham Children's Hospital

18th May 2012

Panasonic Toughbooks are to be used at Birmingham Children’s Hospital as part of a new food ordering and management system, which will collect and process patient meal orders.

It is the first hospital to use such a system with a phased roll-out planned across all wards. The project, developed in partnership with software developers Ambinet, has seen the trust create an application for electronic food ordering called Maple which it hopes will revolutionise mealtimes and be a replacement for paper menus.
