Success stories

We’re helping a provincial healthcare authority meet front-line communication needs.

Our solution means our client can meet increased PPID standards easily and economically.

Challenge

Greater focus on patient safety is requiring healthcare providers to meet higher standards for positive patient ID (PPID). This includes changes such as:

• Using at least two patient identifiers whenever taking blood samples or administering medications or blood products
• Including barcodes on most prescriptions when dispensing drugs

To meet these tightened requirements, our client needed to replace a plastic-card embossing system with barcoding technology.

Solution

We installed a mobile data-capture solution that produces labels and wristbands, with or without barcodes, quickly and economically. The solution is compact and flexible, allowing staff to print anywhere—nursing stations, patient registration desks, labs, X-ray clinics, surgery.

The solution requires minimal IT involvement during implementation, and operates separately from the mainframe system.

Impact

  • Increased productivity through on-demand patient wristbanding across all healthcare functions and departments
  • Integrated with existing legacy systems and patient data streams
  • Eliminated cost and waste associated with unnecessary printing
  • Significantly decreased equipment maintenance and supply costs
