The consistent and accurate identification of patients has long presented a challenge for healthcare organizations across the globe. Why? Because the process of patient identification remains largely manual and persists across the entire patient journey. As such, it is highly prone to errors and can lead to serious patient harm. Automated patient identification systems are essential to correcting this long-standing problem and improving the health and well-being of patients as well as protecting the integrity of the healthcare system.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors.1 There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) for 2010 advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient. Producing specimen labels at the patient bedside and encoding patient identification in a barcode satisfies both The Joint Commission’s NPSG and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements.

Detecting and preventing errors that threaten patient safety is a closed-loop process that begins at the point of care, extends to independent laboratories, and then back to the caregiver. Sample identification and results reporting errors can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment with deadly consequences. A 2006 Wall Street Journal article reported that while malpractice claims for pathology errors are relatively low, they are the second most costly. In addition to creating a serious risk to patient safety, sample misidentification creates significant financial implications. Redraws, retesting and additional treatment that result from sample errors cost the healthcare industry an estimated $200 million to $400 million per year.

Thanks to numerous, headline-making incidents in recent years, cybercrime has risen toward the top of the concern list for many organizations—and the customers with whom they do business. You’ve heard many of the stories. Major health insurers, such as Anthem, Premera BlueCross and CareFirst had personal information for millions of their customers stolen. Sony Pictures experienced a breach that not only embarrassed employees and adversely impacted the release of the high-profile film, “The Interview,” but also damaged systems and applications—making it extremely difficult for the company to conduct business. The list goes on. Some you maybe haven’t heard, like the one about CodeSpaces, a provider of version management services to developers. When attackers were able to gain access to its cloud-based management consoles, they deleted the company’s entire infrastructure and backups—ultimately forcing CodeSpaces out of business. The bad news for organizations like yours is, thanks to the

The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patient’s healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And that’s how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology. By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. It’s also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to “Improve the accuracy of patient identification,” which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.

When it came time for Southwest Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) to deploy a new barcode medication administration (BCMA) system, SVMC chose a Zebra positive patient ID system consisting of barcode printers, scanners, software tools, media and labels. Since that time, over two million medication doses have been administered. Nurses have been able to achieve an average medication scan rate of over 95% and a patient identification scan rate in excess of 99% for inpatient units. Even more impressive, these results have been sustained over a five-year period.
