EDM2000 is a program allowing storage of detailed patient information,
modular feed analyses and calculation, feed production and labelling, and collection and collation of
The program stores patient details and product details thus
permitting the creation of modular feeds simply and accurately. There are
many cross checks and validations to ensure the feed is within parameters.
A recipe for the feed preparation area and a feed analysis sheet are produced at
the press of a function key.
The system is also supplied with a comprehensive set of
reports. These reports permit the manager or supervisor detail statistics
and costing for the production of feed.
The network version permits unlimited number of users from
any PC on the network to run the system. We have one hospital where the
EDM2000 system runs across several physical sites within the one hospital and
another site when one installation of EDM2000 serves two hospitals.
The network system is suitable for departments with three or more dieticians.
They can produce all the documentation plus feed labels from various PCs on the
network. The recipe printer and label printer can be installed remotely in
the feed unit area to assist with production.
The cost of supply detailed below does not include
installation or training. The cost of such services is dependant on
location, type of network and the number of dieticians and feed preparation
staff that require training.

Cost comparison: This is difficult, as there is no
other commercial product that we are aware of to
directly compare with. Thus, we have chosen to compare too a basic
application that you may all be familiar with, Microsoft Office. The cost
of an unlimited user license of EDM2000 is equivalent to just 23 retail
copies of Microsoft Office. Unfortunately, there is no comparable support
offering from Microsoft that we can identify to compare costs with. However,
Microsoft charge up to 29% of the product cost to provide upgrades - we
include this with all our support packages. At the end analyses, if
EDM2000 prevents just one clinical mistake to be made then it will of
paid for itself at that moment. In many situations it will save your department
so much time that it can negate the need to hire an additional dietician - thus
paying for it's self in less than six months.
