From admitting desk, to patient bedside, to pharmacy and beyond, specialty barcoding and radio frequency identification (RFID) technology solutions provide the basis for patient safety across the healthcare industry.
Healthcare System Pharmacies
Add accuracy, safety, and efficiency to prescription processing with barcode and RFID labeling solutions. Thermal printers produce high quality labels for prescription orders, bottles, vials, IV bags, and unit-dose packaging. Most printers support bar code and radio frequency identification (RFID) encoding for automated tracking, dispensing, and security.
Healthcare Materials Management
Take the guesswork out of maintaining supply levels across multiple stocking locations by using timesaving bar code systems to provide accurate, up-to-date information. Barcodes and RFID make it easy to identify all types of supplies, kits, equipment, and other assets, so materials management systems can be updated with a simple scan, and inventory can be balanced throughout the facility.
Barcode and RFID printers and supplies are reliable tools to help improve patient safety, manage records securely and efficiently, and track samples and supplies accurately. Medication administration errors cause an estimated 7,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Bar code systems are a proven way of preventing these errors. Wristbands help healthcare professionals identify the right patient every time, and they are a cornerstone of multiple barcode applications that can improve safety, accuracy, and efficiency throughout your hospital.
Identify specimens with certainty and enter test results quickly and accurately with barcode and radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions. Identification, tracking, and data entry operations can be automated with bar code and RFID technology. Printers, labels, and networking solutions make it easy for laboratories to improve efficiency while improving patient safety.
Automatic identification systems provide a way to protect information integrity throughout your research and testing processes. Barcode and radio frequency identification (RFID) are ideal for use in life sciences because they ensure accurate information, while reducing the time required to collect data. Wherever testing, tracking, recording, and documentation take place, barcode and RFID solutions provide the control and accuracy your industry demands.
Positive patient identification is the foundation of patient safety. Wristbands provide a convenient, one-step solution for patient IDs. Text, graphics, and barcodes can be printed directly on the wristband in a single pass. Wristbands produced in this manner eliminate the need for handwritten or typed inserts, or stick-on labels. In addition, they save time and ensure greater accuracy.
