Positive Patient Identification expertise improves patient and staff experience for prominent healthcare provider

The Challenge:

As part of a growing legislative mandate for patient safety, healthcare providers are required to use at least two patient identifiers whenever taking blood samples or administering medications and blood products. An additional FDA rule requires barcodes on most prescriptions when dispensing drugs. To maintain compliance with these Positive Patient Identification regulations, a prominent healthcare provider needed to replace its legacy plastic card embossing and imprinting systems with a technology-based barcoding system.

The Solution:

Engaging DCM, the healthcare provider updated their embossing system with our patented PDF 417 barcode technology and Patient ID XPRESS™ Data Capture Stations. These stations convert patient data streams into a “Master Patient Label” and can produce labels and wristbands with or without barcodes quickly, easily, and economically. Their small footprint enables the provider to print anywhere—nursing stations, patient registration areas, labs, X-ray clinics, and surgery. The system requires minimal IT involvement during implementation and operates independently from mainframe systems, so 24/7, failsafe service is ensured.
