Where urgency is paramount and time as well as resources can be limited, it's important to improve efficiencies within the healthcare industry that not only save money and boost productivity, but also improve overall patient care. That is why hospitals use several barcode applications for various occasions. Studies have shown that barcodes reduce medical errors by 41%. So, anything that can be tagged or labelled can be barcoded. And everything that can be barcoded requires a barcode label solution!
As hospitals are moving to an automatic data capture environment safety protocols areimproved,and medical mistakes are preventable.
Improved patient identification comes from customisedwristbands,which remain with the patient throughout his total stay at the hospital. That way the barcode of the wristband holds critical information about the patient, such asmedication allergies, dietary restrictions, or any other critical data that should be always available to the staff.
Blood specimen mix-ups is an unfortunate event that can be limited with the use of healthcare barcodes.
