Is Your Technology Helping or Hindering Patient Care?

Posted June 23, 2020

In a span of ten years, over 90%[1] of medical facilities nationwide have switched from paper-based tracking to automated systems, yet patient identification problems continue to persist in the digitized era. Researchers at the ECRI Institute suggest that technology may be responsible for as much as 15%[2] of patient misidentification errors occurring predominantly at the patient’s bedside. Several technical issues may be to blame, including:

  • Poorly printed identification wristbands
  • Complicated or “buggy” tracking software
  • Lack of available devices
  • Devices incapable of capturing data without line of sight

Explore the advantages of a high-performing patient identification solution in our video:

Keep Errors Out of Your Medication Administration System

Posted June 9, 2020

Coming in behind heart disease and cancer, medication administration errors stand as the third leading cause of death in the U.S., eventually leading to recurrent relabeling efforts and strict compliance guidelines. On the hospital floor, staff is encouraged to verify the Five Rights to prevent errors before they occur.

  • Right Patient
  • Right Drug
  • Right Time
  • Right Dose
  • Right Form

However, with the large influx of patients and current hospital overcrowding issues, manual verification can be overwhelming, contributing to an average of 100,000[1] medication administration errors reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) per year. With the correct technology and expertise, Barcodes Inc. equips your staff with medication administration solutions designed to overcome one of healthcare’s toughest challenges. See how we can help:

Three risks to look for in your specimen collection system

Posted June 9, 2020

Studies suggest specimen collection can influence up to 70%[1] of treatment plans and medical decisions. However, even the most accurate specimen will fail to do good if matched with the wrong patient. With over seven billion specimens collected per year, the average 1:300 error rate can be detrimental to both patient health and healthcare efficiency. To mitigate specimen collection error, healthcare specialists recommend tracking three common risks hiding in your hospital:

  • Poor staff communication channels – Efficient care relies on committed collaboration between staff. Conducting on-site assessment and project management services, Barcodes, Inc. works with you to implement secured communication channels and specimen labeling that’s compliant with HIPAA standards.
  • Complicated data collection software – Complex software can erase manual data entry but not its errors. Designing tailored software that fits your workflow, Barcodes, Inc simplifies data collection and sharing.
  • Unclear specimen visibility – As specimens are re-labeled throughout the lab, Barcodes Inc. simplifies specimen processing with Zebra’s DS8100 healthcare-grade scanner to accelerate streamlined data capture, maximizing overall visibility. Learn more about it in our video below:

Why Zebra Scanners?

To reduce risk potential, our technicians strive to match your crucial operations with easy-to-use technologies. Ushering in adaptable efficiency, Zebra’s DS8100 healthcare scanners can help you enhance the patient experience with:

  • Intelligent data capture that scans even the most problematic labels
  • Disinfectant-ready housing that prevents germ spread
