Photo Bar-Coded Wristbands
As a healthcare professional, you're aware of the devastating statistics surrounding medical errors. What you may not know is Lexmark is a valuable resource. We have printing technology and partnerships to provide "best practice" solutions to reduce medical errors.
Lexmark's colour Wristband solution is one example. It incorporates the printing of at least two patient identifiers to help you verify the identity of your patients. What distinguishes this solution from others is the addition of a colour photograph of the patient on the wristband. This photo can be obtained at the time of admission, or through the image already in another system.
Additionally, bar-coding on the wristband provides information that is linked to the patient's medical record - maximizing the possibility of error-free human interaction. These two identifiers work together to reduce the potential for error.
Lexmark has experience in developing and implementing cost effective, easy to implement healthcare solutions that focus on your business issues and patient safety issues.
