DataRay thermal label and wristband printers are specifically designed to attach and print barcodes for many different Hospital Information Systems as an immediate and efficient solution, offering the most cost effective means to migrate off unsafe, undependable embosser equipment, to providing reliable, accurate labels and wristbands with exceptional readability.
Implementing a bar coding system provides solutions to a wide variety of obstacles many hospitals and other healthcare facilities often face. A patient’s information can be put in the form of a mere ID number that when scanned, displays information assigned to that specific number. Utilizing barcodes provides a means of accessing a patient’s medical records and information easily and instantaneously, but at the same time, gives the patient the privacy they desire.
One of the most effective ways to improve patient safety is by using bar-coded wristbands combined with an automated medication administration system. Using a barcode/scanner system, hospitals can drastically reduce and prevent unnecessary medication administration errors, while increasing patient/employee satisfaction and peace of mind. By incorporating DataRay’s bar-coded labels and wristbands with an automated medication administration system, the “Five Rights” can be checked automatically and immediately: right patient, right medication, right dose, right time, and right method of administration. With this method of patient and medication verification, healthcare professionals can be sure that the patient will be identified correctly with accurate information given every time.
