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:
