Positive Patient ID: The right care, when and where it’s needed
August 28, 2023
Safe, high-quality healthcare begins with efficiency and accuracy
The failure to correctly identify patients causes serious errors related to everything from testing and medication to wrong-person procedures and mistaken discharges. It harms millions of people and costs billions of dollars annually.
PPID technology can dramatically lower the risk of error. Through solutions built around barcoding, scanning, and labelling, clinicians can ensure accurate patient identification at every point of care.
Protecting safety for patients. Instilling confidence in providers.
PPID is vital to patient safety—but it’s also part of maintaining a healthcare team’s credibility and morale.
